Please note that at least
have versioned dependencies on either libemail-mime-creator-perl or
libemail-mime-modifier-perl, and those won't be satisfied by the
Provides: entries. (See policy 7.5)

Changing the dependencies to something like
libemail-mime-perl (>= xxx) | libemail-mime-creator-perl (>= yyy)
should be enough, but this needs to be done before the removal happens
to avoid uninstallability problems.

Why make fallback to libemail-mime-creator-perl (>= yyy) versioned?

I see no need for that.

Well, I was talking about current versioned dependencies. I assume
the versions are mentioned for a reason. As an example:

Package: bugzilla3
Depends: [...], libemail-mime-modifier-perl (>= 1.442-2), [...]

would need to be changed to

Depends: [...], libemail-mime-perl (>= 1.900) | libemail-mime-modifier-perl (>= 1.442-2), [...]

Sorry if I'm missing something.

Oh, sorry: I saw it wrongly as a suggestion on "no _newer_ versions than this one".

Your previous mail makes perfect sense to me now (I just had a shower, that might have been what freshened up my vision :-P ).
