That approach is good is principle.

But I'd do it the other way around--otherwise you have to update all libxfce4ui
references in all the other packages (which presumably can use the newer
version just fine).

So better rename the old libxfce4ui variable to libxfce4ui-1 and then
update the reference in xfce4-embed-plugin to use libxfce4ui-1, and
then introduce a new libxfce4ui variable with a similar body as your
libxfce4ui/latest had.

That means that everyone still referring to the libxfce4ui variable will get
the new version automatically.
