Indeed, that's why I think what to do isn't really clear. 2 points
if favor of having fc7 in all the specs is that it is really the 'latest' 
version shipped in fedora, and it can be the same for all the branches.
Using %{dist} will get wrong when it becomes fc8.

Maybe a solution could be to skip a release and obsolete that release
without dist tag. For example:
foo-0-4%{?dist} is the latest version with the subpackage foo-sub.
next package is foo-0-6%{?dist} and in this package and above there is 
Obsolete: foo-sub <= 0-5

Maybe another possibility could be to use
Obsoletes: ettercap-plugins < 0.7.3-15
Would that work?
