True. However my personal take on this is updates from the previous
release should never have a NEVR higher than that of rawhide, because that
will screw moving from previous to rawhide which is a valid use-case.

So even if updates frome previous do not work with rawhide, they should
never be applied by the package manager even if the old repo is still
configured. If that is not the case this is a repo, not user problem
