Because a lot of GNOME works directly with (and depends on) the core
OS., and we want a stable system.

And really because we should rather invest effort in making sure that
upgrades between major releases for the core OS and default desktop
packages are nearly bulletproof, and in addition try to maintain a
parallel-installable stable set of library packages for a set period
of time.  This would make it so that things outside the core are less
likely to break due to core upgrades.   I'm thinking concretely here
of say a package like clutter which has switched 0.6 -> 0.8 -> 1.0 in
the same "clutter" package is a bad idea once the core desktop depends
on it, we'll need to parallel install.
