A couple of days ago I was talking with DaNiMoTh about this:

foo-1.1 was in current, and he was writing a PKGBUILD for a software
that needs foo >= 2.0 , but he also maintains a PKGBUILD for foo-svn,
in this case, a provides=('foo-2.0') would be useful, so IMHO makes
sense to implement it.
Just my 2 eurocents.
