As Ciaran said, these two kinds of masks give two very different
behaviors that are not interchangeable in current dependency resolvers.
If you make make them interchangeable, then you take away a kind of
granularity that is provided by having them separate, and you also have
to change how the dependency resolvers handle them in all package
managers (and repoman too).

As I have said before [1], I would suggest to create separate profiles
for stable and unstable, and add separate entries to profiles.desc so
that repoman can check them separately.
