Was fesco aware that we're talking about a download size of less than
2% [1] and that the disttag confusion is the least of the upcoming
potential problems [2]? Was it clear that this is the first time ever
Fedora rebuilds less than 95% of its packages (FC did 95-100%
rebuilds, FE > 99%, now it's 80% and 62% respectively) [3]? These
"details" are rather important.

And the rebuilds for the broken packages are doomed to happen, the
choice is just whether it's during development in one bulk or during
maintenance as each broken package is reported.
