Sometimes an updated package makes changes to its data structures. For example, consider if the package does some kind of migration to its data in such a way that the new version can read it, but the old cannot (e.g. a PostgreSQL upgrade, and IIRC the Firefox discussion from a while ago also noted that it cannot be downgraded in all cases). Thus, distro-sync doesn't work in all cases if the upgraded package has already made changes on the user's system.
