This is a very tenuous strawman. You could also run into a case where
ELN forbids modules or default module streams and the maintainers
simply choose not to maintain anything in Fedora at all. That's far
worse than divergence in my opinion.
When ELN was proposed and discussed, separate eln branches were proposed by
several Fedora and RHEL maintainers. It was dismissed, and it was said
repeatedly that rawhide/ELN divergence MUST be avoided. I wonder if that
requirement has changed.
Fortunately, I think neither are
actually likely and this part of the conversation seems like it's
pointless to debate.
This has happened in the past when Fedora had default modular streams. Whether
likely or not to repeat, we have experience with the problem, so the discussion
is not pointless at all.
