It is not necessary. Look at fetchmail, for instance:
Replaces: popclient, fetchmail-ssl, fetchmail-common
Provides: popclient, fetchmail-ssl, fetchmail-common
Conflicts: popclient, fetchmail-ssl, fetchmail-common, logcheck (<< 1.1.1-9)

I don't know and didn't check for the others *-ssl packages, though.
