The osabi dummy package itself seems to me like a rather kludgy solution
to a subset of a difficult problem. From the perspective of updating
it causes more problems than it solves. Besides, when you try to install
a package build for a different OS release you already get a warning
from the tools.

But the warning is not all what is needed - a sane way to update them
is needed. I like the idea of the osabi dummy package, it allows to strip
extra information from PKG_NAME and with it, better dependency tracking
(e.g. when adding a perl module for lsof).
Before osabi dummy package, it was required to update packages with
OSABI dependencies to install dependent packages - regardless if the
work fine or not.
