I wasn't able to reproduce the upgrade issue on a chroot, because x-x-v-glamoregl got removed during the upgrade process before installing xserver-xorg-core as the video ABI's conflicted as expected. That said, having the conflicts/replaces in the package is the right thing to do so marking verified.
