This is all well and dandy for traditional base + updates systems, it's
an assumption that's dead wrong for rolling releases like rawhide.

This thread as shown nothing @rh checks rawhide iterations are
self-consistent before pushing them. So there are no "good" distro
states, only a string of "gray" system states, and it's totally wrong of
yum to expect a "good" system state will appear some time in the future.

Hell, in theory it would be possible for rawhide to never be in a state
yum likes from FCx to FCx+1T1
