No, not really.

Actually, installing rawhide or the F-12 Beta (or using a livecd) would help
get the graphics issues fixed prior to F-12 release.  That is going to help
much more than wasting the developer's time trying to backport everything to
F-11, pushing it to updates-testing, and dealing with all the fallout.
