That would be great, in these situations I would just post a comment asking
the maintainer if there is any difference with this package and the one in
community, there is the possibility that the difference is being overlooked.

Then ask the maintainers of the dependencies if they can build and
run their packages against the one in community - and if so, request that
they update their packages to reflect the dep change.

I know that it requires a little more effort, but the end result is much
