Putting the bare minimum packages in the packages section of the 
kickstart and then installing the might-conflict-RPMs in post or with a 
config management
system (that also configures protect-base) might be an answer.   

If you're using the "repo" entries in kickstart, then the latest package 
will be pulled from any repository, regardless
of what repository that is.  (Example:  package foo has a version 1.23 
in updates, but is 1.00 in the base tree -- Anaconda will pick 1.23).
