Could we overcome some ( all ? ) of this overlap issue with relevant
compat-package-version packages ?

Extras only link against base, since they dont overlap any of the
functionality of the packages in base. Also, Extras are enabled by
default, a user can 'yum install foo' from a stock install with no
manual intervention or an 'opt in' required. If a package from Extras
was to link against something in CentOSPlus, I'd presume that the
package needs to be moved into CentOSPlus itself since its unusable in
