I think from your perpective it makes sense as it stops anyone getting 
itchy fingers and doing their own RPMs. At the same time, I think we do 
need to make it possible/easy to do RPMs *and have them consistent*. If 
hadoop-core makes RPMs that don't work with your settings rpms, you get 
to field to the support calls.
