Jerome, i think you misunderstood, what he wants is not to do a :

depend: ocamlnet (>= 4.5.6), ocamlnet (<4.5.7)

but to use a virtual package like ocaml does, that is ocamlnet 4.5.6
would :

provide: ocamlnet-4.5.6.

And what would be in the policy would be an explanation, plus some text
making this mandatory to be policy compliant.
