Dunno if rpm have a 'provide', but if, I would add such a provide to the corresponding binary packages. This would be "nagios-enterprises-plugins" and "monitoring-plugins" as long as both are compatible.

This isn't a bad idea at all, as those plugins aren't either from Nagios Enterprises, LCC nor from the Monitoring Plugins Project. If there are projects maintaining a larger set of plugins those should maybe get it's own source package.
