What I'm looking for from this discussion is a definition of the target audience for fedora.

I remember pointing out this to you atleast twice but see http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Objectives

 Nobody expects perfection, but is there really an
audience that doesn't care if their devices stop working or not?

Don't confuse robustness with ABI breakage.

There have been large chunks of time that it hasn't worked or disks wouldn't be recognized even if it saw a raw IEEE device. I gave up and switched the machines that needed it to Centos with the centosplus kernel so I don't know the current state except that I've seen comments about a complete rewrite coming so it must still leave something to be desired

The rewrite is already in Fedora 7 (and will be in RHEL 5.1).
