Skipping over a lot of other replies between you and I because I think that
we disagree on a lot but that's all moot if we agree here.

I have no problems with Obsoletes, Conflicts, Requires, and Provides types
of fields are marked informational.  In fact, there are many cases where
packages are overzealous in their use of Requires right now that cause
distributions to patch the dependency information in the package metadata.
