Are you sure?  Epoch in RPM supercedes version, and I was under the
impression that it worked similarly in Debian.

If it does, it's not documented in the policy manual. And even still, it shouldn't matter. If people are going to change their source for the packages (especially going to the main repository), they need to remove all the packages from conflicting repositories.
