Great explanations.  Nevertheless, I am unsure of your "exception", at the  
end of the post.  Even with the "trisquel" metapackage removed, updating the  
distribution should not "result in a broken desktop", as far as I understand:  
the still-installed dependencies of the older "trisquel" metapackage should  
be updated (they can even have new dependencies), and so should packages  
installed on top of that.  That should be fine.  Simply, the user does not  
discover the new default applications that entered the new version of the  

So, for the specific example you gave, the user of Belenos who removed the  
"trisquel" metapackage and updates to Flidas should still have a working  
GNOME Flashback (at least if I correctly remember what is Belenos's default  
desktop environment).  That said, and as I wrote before, I am unsure: I have  
not tested that.
