Well, it is sort of like customizing your car.

If you start with the realization that the manufacturer omits vital parts and you are required to customize to have something useful.
You could also start with the realization that the car is "working as designed". It is useful as designed and does was intended to do. Just not what you want to do....go 160mph (for example).

if they forget, and cavalierly start dragging packages out of other
repositories sometime down the road, they have no one but themselves
to blame.

Can you point to the documentation that explains that? It's broken as designed.

I think it is more of a common sense type of thing. Anyone can start their own 3rd party repository.

The 3rd parties in question existed before the fedora repos.
So what? The 3rd party repos were incompatible prior to fedora.

You or I could start our own. But it is just like any other 3rd party enterprise. It is not expected, or mandated that they work together.

Not expected to work togther...  Yes that's a good description.

If you think they should...then you are operating under a flawed assumption.

I think we agree that the design is wrong.
I think you should refrain from concluding what you think I think. FWIW, I have no idea what "design" you are talking about. AFAIK, there is no "design" that 3rd party repo creators are supposed to follow to ensure they are compatible.

There is no such thing as a problem without a gift for you in its hands.
