I like the idea. Only question is how would it enforce that only the latest bundle from Orbit is used?

Two parts to this.

1. For bundles with functional change we currently change the qualifier, so that case is easy as the dependency needs to specify that qualifier to as I did inĀ
2. For bundles with just signature changes we need to adopt compare and replace so that we keep reusing the previously signed bundle, so that orbit does not publish new versions of bundles with only signature changes. And when we do need to do things like resign all the bundles, then do a forced qualifier update.

So, the first part is doable now. The second part requires more work which won't happen in 2020-12 timeframe, but onceĀ is done this should be achievable.

However, we could do part 2 for all the current git bundles for 2020-12 RC2. Not sure it is necessary though as the more problematic bundles are the older CVS defined one.
