How about something in bodhi that checks you aren't introducing this
problem, forcing you to push a higher NVR package to $nextrelease first 
before you can push it to updates?

Considering these updates are supposed to be for our 'stable' release,
having them be in $nextrelease first seems like a good idea anyway.
