No. Obsoletes does just what the name suggests: It means the new
xen.rpm will replace an existing xen.rpm and also packages providing or
being named like the strings in the Obsoletes: tag.

Adding a Provides: tag is just for package managers above rpm as a hint
during dist upgrade to track package renames.

For the purpose of xen-unstable a "Name: xen" and "Obsoletes: xen-xyz"
is the right way to replace the distro provided xen related packages
with the catch-all single selfcompiled xen.rpm.
