In which ways are we breaking it?  jpp has foo-2.6.0-6jpp.  Fedora has 
foo-2.6.0.6jpp-1.fc6.  2.6.0.6 is rpmnewer than 2.6.0-6, upgrade path exists.  
If jpp issues 2.6.0-7jpp, its going to be newer than what FC provides yes, 
but do we want users picking up that package?  Shouldn't they stay with the 
FC provided one?  Or do you want it replaced and then replaced again when FC 
bumps the package?

So then put it in the name rather than the version.

"Upstream": foo-2.6.0-6jpp

Name: foo-6jpp
Version: 2.6.0
Release: 1%{?dist}

Provides: foo = 2.6.0-6jpp
