Right, md5 is still used for various other things too (I think koji uses it too for similar id purposes) because it's the only thing that absolutely universally is there, and probably will need to remain for a long time still. Dropping the signatures is the more interesting and beneficial case though - md5 can be recalculated anytime, but not so with signatures (thinking about the compressed/uncompressed payload case)
