No, of course not. It will however create a funky hard-to-reproduce
bug where the defaults are not what's expected.

If we ever got unlame and implemented "gconftool
--makefile-uninstall-rule" that removed the schemas again, that might
also cause issues with multiple packages owning the same key. Well,
definitely would; if you installed gstreamer 1 and gstreamer 2 then
removed 1 the shared schemas would vanish but 2 would still need them.
