So?
Fedora -is- bleeding edge.
At least in my case, when I require a stable disto, I either use RHEL
or CentOS... not Fedora.

IMHO Fedora [1] isn't looking to be number one. It -is- looking to
showcase the best and latest of the OSS world.

I'm not sure that they are wrong.
While I think that that KDE4 should not be pushed into rawhide before
all the building blocks are bolted in (Read: Plasma... Not sure about
Phonon) - I do not agree that Fedora should forsake its designated
goal in the name of stability and market share.
