GNOME:STABLE contains what was in openSUSE 11.1 and is suppose to be updated to latest 2.24.x (already have a few updates like evo in there) so we want to keep it.
I still think, that GNOME:STABLE is a bad name. Maybe we just follow SVN-style development and create trunk (Factory) and stable branches (GNOME_2_24 or so). Each of these "stable" branches may live for some time, then silently die. Subscribing to GNOME:STABLE introduce large upgrade time after time, which may be considered as unwanted.
If GNOME:GTK.* is causing issues it'd be good to fix it or get rid of it. I'm not involved in that one so I'll leave that up to you :-)
It does not cause any problem. It's simply unmaintained. I brought it for packages, which need newer GTK+, but not whole GNOME (e. g. GIMP).
Maybe linking to G:S would be a solution as well.
