You can create a package that does nothing but depend on packages you want to 
have installed, and possibly conflict with packages you want removed.

I suggest however that in such a case you have one package which handles the 
conflicts and have the main meta-package recommend (not depend) on it.  Then 
if someone really wants to have one of the undesired packages then they can 
do it.
