I said that up2date have the behavior of "exactarch=1" yum option.
Until now, for me, "exactarch=1" does not permit the installation of an
i686 on an i486 system or does not permit arch "upgrade" (i368 -> i686).
I think it reasonable to permit update that "downgrade" the arch.
Any way, I am not a specialist...
