I agree completely. But breaking users' installations, or presenting them with a complex remediation "solution" might not be the most helpful way ;) Also keep in mind that when an upgrade causes problems due to 3rd-party plugins messing it up, this probably won't fall back on the 3rd-party plugin, but on Eclipse, which is after all suggesting/performing the upgrade.
I do not find the P2 remediation helpful. It takes forever, even when the problem is just 'already installed' (Bug exists).

Whenever P2 gives me an error, I cancel immediately since for me the fall-back bad dependency trace contains an accurate albeit obfuscated description of the problem. In comparison when I have left it to the remediation, the remediation has, I think, never been helpful to me. I've even raised a bug because I couldn't understnad waht was on offer.

Sorry but that's the way it is, and I don't think we can offer it to users.
