Well, sure, but the rule in the beginning always was "Extras packages
don't conflict or replace packages from Core". Well, it seems it got
lost on the way. I'm wondering if we should put it back, but I tend to
think that's worth the trouble as Core and Extras might merge by FC7 in
any case.

I've always interperated this:

MUST: Packages must not own files or directories already owned by
other packages.

as conflicts should be avoided.  I've even filed bug reports:
