I've been told it is "possible", but often the hassle of unwinding 
something that should not be there is there is deemed "too much work" 
compared the the alternative of leaving it there.  We've been in this 
situation a few times already for Fedora 12.

I realize the new rawhide proposal is supposed to fix this problem, but 
until it is implemented and live I'm wary of portraying it as the 
solution that will truly fix everything.  I don't think Fedora has had 
anything like that yet in its history, nor would I expect it to.
