I agree completely but i have formed the impression [perhaps mistakenly] 
that packages moved to extras are "orphaned" packages as far as RH is 
concerned. Or is that just the norm and not the "law"? I think you will 
allay a great many fears and improve the perception of extras if this is 
the case and it is communicated to the user/dev base a little better. In 
case i am completely mistaken is there a reference document that spells 
out the distinctions and flow of this type of information? I would much 
rather read up on it than learn bit by bit pestering people over mailing
