Althought there is nothing wrong in the non-core plugins overriding the core 
ones, it's always cleaner and clearer if they are installed only when 
necessary. So personally I prefer to keep the non-core version number always a 
bit lower then the core one, so after QGIS upgrade the installer will rather 
warn and remove the obsolete update, instead of updating it with the recent 
update ;)

Exactly. It's what I called "necessary" in the paragraph above.

This behaviour is present for years. The only addition still to be made for 
2.0 is removing the obsolete updates (now it only warns and suggests to do it
