Because of bug 850880 we will only see this on the ubuntu development release. However, when that bug is fixed, there is the possibility of:
 - user installs cobbler (and/or orchestra)
 - user does a netboot install and it works
 - user waits 3 weeks
 - user does a netboot install and it fails because the kernel booted from the netboot iso cannot find modules in the mirror as they've been purged due to a newer kernel version in -updates.

In IRC conversation with cjwatson at , he mentions that this will not be a problem, as "we never do NBS runs on post-release pockets at the moment". Collin also said "this is sort of a bug but we could refrain from fixing it if it would make life easier"

So, right now, even if we pulled from -updates, this will not be an issue.
