If MS Office is removed, then Libre Office is installed, that was what 
you asked.

I don't think we need to make things more complicated, I have always 
succeeded using the current available dependencies.

Remove the package from the profile of the host and it gets removed, any 
other package being blocked by that package will be installed afterwards.

I don't think one should create complex dependency constructs for 
software deployment.

Assign what is needed to the host and allow installation of additional 
required software through dependencies, that is simple and supported.
