This might be obvious, but just in case it ain't.
One need to make sure that the obsoleted package is removed from the new release's and mirrors before removing the obsoletes from the spec file, if that's what you were thinking of. The proposed wiki article('s) and documentation should say something about it.

The wording needs a little working on. The example suggest that mga2 is to be obsoleted. and clearly that ain't the intetion. ;-)=
I'd sugest "Obsoleted in: mga2"

A combination of that and Anssi's suggestion could work.
# Obsoleted in: mga2 - added 2011-04
