Proposal mass bug filling on packages depending on xlibs(?)

I wanted to fill bug on groff which doesn't depend on libxp6, but found
much more deeper problem.
Many packages (5653 at moment) in breezy depend on libx<something> |
xlibs (>> 4.1.0), which is wrong, because xlibs is transitional package
and doesn't contain any libraries.
Either all dependencies has to be changed to drop xlibs (>> 4.1.0) or
xlibs should start depending on all libx<something> libraries.
I think that first solution is the right one(tm), but it maybe so much
work, that second should be done for breezy.
