Reading the comments there it seems one reason people were skipping upper-constraints was to find problems with dependencies early (rather than avoiding them with constraints and updating when everyone was happy to work with it).

Another more social reason, is that the people behind Tooz (that are now
not involved in the project) loved to do things their own way, and loved
experimentation, even if this meant not always being fully aligned with
the best practices of the rest of the OpenStack project. I'm sure
old-timers will know what I'm talking about! :)

Anyways, it's probably time to realign...

P.S: This post is in no way a critic of the involved people or what they
did (I actually enjoyed a lot interacting with them), I'm just exposing
a fact...
