Good idea. Setting this as the default home-page is a very good idea.
Come to think about it, why not update the default FAQ using yum, the
day FC-X is EOL'ed, adding a short message:
"This released has been handed over to the "Fedora Community Maintenance
Project"... <explain what FC-L means and that the user is not forced to
upgrade.. blah blah>"

Though most ex-Windows users are already used to ignoring the
readme/EULA/what-ever.
