I think that is OK. dpkg is very low level.

I disagree on putting dpkg and apt on the same level here. In my
understanding apt-get and aptitude are. They should work on the
same database of package states. If apt-get is run internally by
the unattended upgrades cron job, then the changes done by aptitude
shouldn't be overridden.
