This would be a partial solution depending on what the internal
dependency generator from the RPM does when it creates the RPM's. And
would allow us not to deal with the Epoch (which is good, since Epoch
is a very dangerous thing).

Where do I find documentation to build AAO from source so I can
repackage it and generate a YUM repository to provide as a proof of
concept that adresses the fixes wanted ?
