but then why be unfair to IUS ? or to anyone else for that matter.

the aim of quantification is also based around some level of
expectations, and then writing code or putting in place a process that
helps both sides of the fence adhere to that expectation. eg. not
overwrite rpms from base, might be one ( but then, why not ? if someone
wants to ship a new kernel, then that should be ok right ? ).

a slightly more involved case might be the multilib policy, and
expecting the repo to adhere to whatever is needed in that scope.

a fairly complex issue would be to have a clearly defined, deliverable
security patch policy along with the abililty to force-orphan code that
has 'issues'. Scope of what that issues set might contain is another
conversation in itself.

thats the sort of quantification were going to need. hope that clears
the ambiguity up a bit.
