What had been suggested - the emacs package in FC<6 would
obsolete/provide muse, but NOT obsolete/provide in FC-6 and the music
muse package wouldn't hit until FC6.

Anybody who has run a yum update will have emacs-muse (or whatever)
installed and not have the muse package anymore. In FC-6 since the
emacs-muse package there will NOT obsolete/provide muse, the music muse
will install just fine, but probably should have an epoch just in case
someone installed FC-3/4/5 muse and never did a yum update after the
namespace change. They will end up with music muse replacing the emacs
package, which they may not want - but there's a lot of time between now
and FC-6.

Did the music muse need to get into FC5?
If so, is it possible to obsolete muse < 1:n.n.n w/ no provides? I know
that would give rpmlint errors, I don't know if you can limit an
obsoletes to less than an epoch or not.
