Conflicts result in obvious problems such as packages refusing to
install.

More of a problem are potential incompatibilities which can result in
run-time issues, such as (but not limited to) libraries being built with
a different feature set, different optimizations (maybe less tested
compiler flags), different package content (different ownership if
files/directories) and packages upgrading eachother (or even upgrading
packages from Fedora Core). That can result in an installed set of
packages which is completely untested and hence unsupported.
