It depends on what you are trying to accomplish. If they are screwing
themselves, then we let them. If they screw up and we want to allow
users to easily upgrade to Debian proper, then it is up to us to
make changes. If we don't care to let users upgrade to real Debian
easily, then I agree we should do nothing.
