HD 6870 with Crimson installed - Updates try to reinstall Catalyst. Why?

Every day I'm asked to install Catalyst. Crimson is working fine and it's a later version. When I click the update button, it tries to install Catalyst, latest version. Is there a good reason for it trying to revert to Catalyst? If not, how can I just make Crimson wait for the next Crimson version instead of trying to revert to Catalyst?

Easiest way is to use Autoruns to disable the update notifications

Legacy branch being nagged about GCN driver updates
