It's known, but implementing this is *hard*, and there are concerns how it 
could impact the speed/performance of performing updates.  Pushing updates 
as-is already is a multi-hour operation, mind you.

OK, so a broken dep is found somewhere, now what?  Stop the presses, 
manually find what is broke, restart updates-push from the beginning?   Not 
fun.  Hopefully, this scratches the surface to communicate how this is very 
much a non-trivial thing to do.

Now, if you're interested in helping to make this a reality, I can help 
facilitate getting in touch with those on the rel-eng side.
