No.  Having libc-bin conflict with libc doesn't help you make sure libc-bin
is pulled into the system, which is what you need.  (There are no "bad
versions" of libc here; there are versions that need libc-bin, and there are
versions that don't, and you need some way to pull libc-bin in for those
versions that do need it.)
