Xorg7 build is a nightmare that will be very hard to fix, if fixing it is 
possible at all :-/

About meta-packages the version issue don't look a big problem to me. GNOME 
and KDE packages are often updated in block in the book, thus an installation 
update will involve all related packages.

Plus, I think that the "Update installed packages" option could work as a 
"Don't drop already installed packages" function. That should be more easy to 
implement and could reinstall some installed packages that depends on the 
updated ones, if the target depends on they also. If some installed package 
don't need to be reinstalled, is easy for the user to remove their build 
script before generating the Makefile.
