Yes, the packages aren't meant to be really used for downgrading when
the package sets are in the same repo.
Until now the model was that there was say 0.27 in bleeding and 0.26 in
stable. When a user activated bleeding she could upgrade to 0.27, play
around and when she wanted to go back to the stable version she would
disable bleeding, remove the packages and reinstall them.
For the model of two releases in one repo you need to disable the other
package set. You don't have a repo to turn off, so you need more
surgically explicit setup, e.g. using --exclude with the version of the
undesired package set.
I think I need to start adding versioned dependencies rather sooner than
later to allow easier transitions, downgrades etc.
