I concur about this, the deb world makes this trivial, its just another line
in the config:

provides: zeromq-core

And the other packages just do:
depends: zeromq-core

Another point for Debian, instead of having conflicts... make the -full and
-min packages replace each other (in the config its replaces: zeromq-full
... ).

Like malo, I still i don't know how any of this translates to rpm, but my
understanding is that the two are very similar these days, having poached
features from each other for all these years :).
