Where else to put them but in core? They are clearly not tainted or
nonfree. And Chromium beta and unstable versions aren't all that
unstable usually  and if you are doing web-development it can be quite
useful to have theese newer versions available.

So the only issue left is chromium-stable being newer tthen
chromium-beta or -unstable, which doesn't harm anyone I think.
It's just that nobody pushed the updates of the other two...
