Part of the reason that we have the caps it to prevent the tools that
auto-generate the constraints syncs from considering these versions and
then depending on the requirements team to strip that from the bot
change before committing (assuming it passes CI).

Once the work Doug's doing is complete we could consider tweaking the
tools to use a different mechanism, but that's only part of the reason
for the caps in g-r.

Yours Tony.
