People use them together and report any problems. But I think what helps 
the most is that we carefully look what others have implemented before we 
duplicate any effort.

CentOS does not introduce anything that is not compatible with RPMforge.
Karan excludes everything from Extras that causes incompatibilities.

I guess that's because people care about allowing users to enable their 
repository and incompatibility with someone else's repository is one way 
of driving users away.

What's more, I often look at Fedora packages to know what I have to 
Obsolete/Provide to make those package somewhat compatible. But the effort 
should not be completely wasted on us IMO.
