I have no problem with granting the exception, but I do think the
definition of the exception should include a explicitly state the
conditions under which it will go away.

The linked document has rationale and ideas for things to be added to
rpm and yum under the "Proposal" section, but there's no clear
statement of just how long the exception is to be granted.  (Perhaps
it's intended to be permanent; it's just not clear from the document.)
