I think it is good advice.  Say have both repos enabled.  An update comes
out for a package in the "updates" before it comes out in "development"
and this package depends on a package that is a different version between
the two (I'm thinking like Python here).  You either get an update that
tries to downgrade your development packages or you get a package that
will be broken.  Granted, up2date or yum will handle the situation, but
why bother with it?

A better way to look at it:

What value would there be to using the FC1 base and updates repos on a
rawhide install?  I don't really think there is any because you want the
development packages to be installed, not the FC1 packages.
