In the new rapid release world we may frequently have the situation where Firefox X is released before Firefox (X+1)b1 is. For 5.0, drivers wanted 5.0b7 users updated to 5.0 and then to 6.0b1.

Our release configs assume that the old build was generated from the same repository as the current build. AIUI, the only thing that oldBaseTag is used for is shipped-locales. We should be able to get that from a different repository.
