When users choose to use third party repositories they are in many cases 
not aware that they are not just adding packages but also replacing 
existing ones in their system which might be a divergence they desire. 
The discussions initiated by one such user along with various posting in 
fedora forum, user lists and irc channel is enough proof that the 
problem exists. Also dag, one of the third party repository packagers 
has essentially required the exact same thing before.

Claiming that the problem is theoretical is ignoring the issue and 
calling it politics or FUD is not going to change that.
