IIRC Goswin said that there are version checks at build time- However
that will only affect consistency of the boot image and the cd image.
The testing scripts should manage version consistency on the mirrors.
However this might not be enough.

Consider someone using a cd image which is a little older an then tries
to use most recent udebs from unstable. This is presently possible and
if we had version incompatibilities they would go unnoticed.
