And the dist tag is just a red herring here.  The Version could just have 
easily been bumped in say FC6 updates after FC7 releases giving you a package 
in FC6 updates that is nv newer than what which is on the FC7 media.  This 
isn't a new problem, and it isn't an easy problem to fix.  Working toward 
making it easier to do a Fedora install and have it consider the available 
updates at install time is really the right direction to go, as the update in 
FC7 should be nvr higher than the same update in FC6.  If you can get to it 
at install/upgrade time it would prevent you from seeing newer packages on 
your system than what is on the media.
