The presence of those packages makes other things possible (like adding
strict dependencies to the release packages to ensure a minimal platform
is available). Other things that it does is allow us to have yum
dependencies select an appropriate configuration sub-package for certain
projects that have different defaults between Products (the most obvious
example today being the firewalld package; it has a vastly different
default configuration depending on the Product).
