Yeah, this is the main problem I have with proposals like this.

With the current set of distributions, the rules for users are reasonably
simple [my personal rule is `unstable for systems with a high-bandwidth net
connection (so I can easily fix problems), and testing for low-bandwidth
systems (so I don't waste time downloading completely borked packages)'].

If the number of distributions increases and gets weirdly complex, users
will probably just stick to one of the easily understandable options.
