Yes, install, but not necessarily upgrade it seems. You explicitly said
in this sub-thread, "It is decidedly odd, and is likely to confuse the
upgrade tool (which attempts to determine whether you're running Ubuntu,
Kubuntu, etc"

I would argue that it is decidedly not odd to have both KDE and Gnome
installed, unless Ubuntu plans to focus on a very narrow user set.

Sorry, I expressed myself incorrectly. I agree there is no lock-down,
but your choice of words that it is "odd" and "likely" to confuse the
upgrade tool seemed to mean that there is no particular concern to make
this work.

But I still get the feeling there is not a big concern for particular
configs that are deemed "odd" although they are completely within the
rules and from the main repository. (Don't get me wrong, I understand
that machines that were hosed by Automatix and similar will have upgrade
trouble, but this is not such a case.)

Sorry, I can't since I was not hit by this issue. I just found it odd to
call some valid configs odd and wanted to underscore that there are very
valid reasons to run such configs.
You now say "may be related" which has a very different ring to it than
