Look at it this way:
If an exact version requirement is encoded, then a future update of ocaml to
a new version has the following effect:
- ocaml is updated, but there is the usual delay before findlib is rebuilt with 
  the new version
- yum update says that in order to upgrade ocaml, findlib has to be removed
  (because a rebuilt findlib is not yet available)
- yum updates ocaml and removes findlib
- the user must remember to regularly try to install findlib which fails until
  a rebuilt version is available
This last step is really annoying and I want to avoid it.
