FC3 rpm behavior change



The FC3 Release Notes say:

=============
   RPM's default behavior regarding file conflicts in Fedora Core 3 has
   changed. In the past, file conflicts (where a file from one
   already-installed package also appears in a package that is to be
   installed) caused the installation of the package containing the
   conflicting file to abort.
                                                                                                                                                                   
   In Fedora Core 3, RPM will ignore such conflicts, and the package
   installation will proceed, overwriting any conflicting files from
   previously-installed packages.
============

What's the rationale for this?
