You mean as "the real thing" or as "provides"?  semonkey packages
from RHEL provide a non-existent "mozilla = 37:1.8", just to make
sure that updates will happen, and I followed exactly the same model
when doing my own packages for FC5.

Apparently "by neglect". :-)  There in now no mozilla in FC6Test so
supposedly there is no problem; only some trip on it.

A distribution upgrade installs disregarding possible conflicts so
this is not an issue.  You may need to remove later some leftover
packages.

With this exception that there are security issues with mozilla
and you cannot remove it from FC5, leaving only an updated firefox
for a browser, without removing other packages as well - like
'yelp', for example.
