 Maybe you could move redhat 7.2 to an unsupported/ folder and put there 
the rebuilded packages which were for 7.3. I think that in 99.999% of the 
cases there will be no problems at all and this service will be invaluable 
to many. For the remaining 0.001%, well... they have been warned and I'm 
sure they will warn the others so the package in question will get fixed 
pretty quickly :)
 The extra time needed for this is not very much and in that way we could
have several other distros (8.0 maybe?) in an almost fully supported
state.

 I will appreciate very much such a move, as I still have a very importand
server with 7.2 and I'm too afraid to upgrade (it runs far too many
services and has some hacks in some places to make the upgrade more 
difficult). I think I'm not the only one in this state...
