So are package maintainer responsibilities as well as QA criteria:

"In Rawhide, updates to packages may cause other packages to have broken
dependencies. Maintainers will be alerted when this happens, and should
work to rebuild their packages with all due haste. Broken dependencies
may leave end user systems in a state where no updates will be applied.
In order to keep the distribution in a reasonable state, someone will
step in and rebuild packages that have had dependency issues for some
time, but package maintainers should not rely on these rebuilds."

"* The distribution SHOULD not contain any broken EVR paths (i.e.
packages that RPM considers "older" than those in the previous release).
* The distribution SHOULD not contain any broken dependencies."
