Yes. Not necessarily "complicated", but much more complex than what we
(= Fedora Extras) have used so far. Proposals are not helpful when
currently we demonstrate that we run into quite severe problems while
preparing FE6 despite the fact that we don't have any "complicated"
requirements (e.g. at the QA-level). A simple "rebuild everything
for a new target platform" won't suffice.

Same applies to _all_ updates, so preferably there are few cases of
"engaging into a release-race with upstream projects just for fun".

Along the same line of thinking, you also don't want to be confronted with
"unexpectedly orphaned packages" either.
