This is somewhat like Debian "Unstable" and "Testing" (our equivalent of 
"Stable" is probably RHEL). Lots of developers in the Debian world use 
unstable packages that "mostly" work, but regular users use testing or 
stable. I assume that a Core release would be preconfigured to install 
things from "blessed", but not "unblessed" without specifically 
configuring it to do so. So, something would need to be in "blessed" 
before it really is available to the masses.
