Well, it's one thing to provide i.e a new gnome-shell, it's another 
things to provide an e-d-s which change soname and would break installed 
applications, ppa are not supposed to break your system...
I will let the people most active in the ppa (Jeremy and Rico) comment 
about that, but my gut feeling is that if the ppa takes a new e-d-s it 
should then deal with the transition and update all the rdepends that 
needs an update, then track security updates etc for any of that 
package, that's a lot of work.

Hum, what makes you think it's the wrong list? No you got at the right 
place there ;-)
