We wouldn't be talking about removing the original GA set - just adding

I don't think that was actually made clear in the initial proposal. I'd
been assuming that the proposal was _exactly_ to remove the GA set.
Usually, when a newer package shows up in any given repository, we don't
keep the previous version of the package, do we? So I assumed the
proposal was expecting that behaviour for the combined repository.

From a QA standpoint I'd think you'd want at least one known-installable
set of pkgs. Since everything after the original GA set is a giant questionmark.

Not to mention that removing all the old pkgs would more or less make deltarpms very difficult.
