In my interpretation of  this is enough if both packages contain
the same file while it is not our case.
IMO 7.6.2 applies here where the Conflicts: is needed, too.

You mean you agree with asking for binNMU for x264 or you want to tell
them something different?
In my testing x264 got fixed by a simple rebuild.
I have to board to my next flight thus I will be back in ~6 hours. :-(
Please file the binNMU request if you are OK with that.
