Default is newer than messages

What is the purpose of the messages "is newer then", from pacman -Su?
Can't they please be removed in the normal case? Is there anyone who need
them? They look like debug messages to me.

$ sudo pacman -Su
:: Starting full system upgrade...

You could read the following thread :
http://www.archlinux.org/pipermail/pacman-dev/2007-April/008102.html

There are 5 mails there with "pacman, be quiet !" title. The two answers
I got from Mateusz and the one I got from Georg all contain reasons for
keeping these messages.
