Sounds fairly commonsensical to me.

One thing I usually do when updating modules is to review the diff
between the version in Fedora and the released version.  (Off "tools"
on the dist page or the "diff" link on the modules
version page.)  It gives me a good idea if I can expect the BR's to
change, and what's going on...  I'd definitely add a good hard look at
the diff if the dist page said 'UNAUTHORIZED' in big red letters  :)
