How many packages would that be? Consider the package naming scheme
of fedora.us which uses the following target release tags:

  rh80 < rh90 < rh90.93 < 0.94

No problems during upgrades. The other example (kernel) doesn't hold
true for Fedora Core, because 0.94 contains a kernel version which is
higher than Red Hat Linux 9, 8.0 and older releases:

  2.4.20-20.9 < 2.4.22-1.2061.nptl
  2.4.20-20.8 < 2.4.22-1.2061.nptl
  2.4.20-20.7 < 2.4.22-1.2061.nptl

Even if there were a kernel upgrade for RHL<=9, I'm sure it would see
a lower package release version than what is in Fedora Core, e.g.
2.4.22-2 in Fedora Core and 2.4.22-1.9 in Shrike Updates.
