I do not see how this matters here. rpm knows enough ways to handle it:

Packagers fall all too easily into the trap of >= and not updating the
min/max versions

It should be more or less trivial to write an rpmlint check which catches
'Requires: firefox >= ...'. A fedora packaging guideline for firefox
plugins can forbid this too.


That still doesn't solve the issue of firefox-foo requires firefox = x.y.z and x.y.z+1 just came out to fix a security issue.
