Indeed. old xulrunner-dev Depends: libmozjs-dev

What I needed for upgrade was:
dpkg -P --force-depends libmozjs-dev
(installed xulrunner still wants it.)
apt-get -f install
(dist-upgrade complains about the now not fullfilled xulrunner-dev -> libmozjs-dev

So yes, that Conflicts is definitely needed besides the obvious Provides/Replaces
