IMHO the good answer is we botched things, because even if a user got old
repositories configured, things should just work.

Sometimes it's easy to write "don't do that, it's known not to work", but
just knowing it doesn't work is rarely a good reason not to fix it. (I
still hope someday someone enhances yum so it works gracefully with
rawhide, instead of blaming the problems yum got with rawhide on the
rawhide state. Rawhide will always be semi-broken, it's intended to be
semi-broken, so wishing for rawhide to be "fixed" won't get us anywhere)
