That's what I (and lots of others) are doing currently. The point of
what I am talking about is to help users by removing the need to chase
lots of different repos.

Rawhide and current Fedora release. The stumbling stone for what I am
talking about compared to the EPEL discussions so far is the long-term
support and API guarantees; in other words, people that use these
packages can expect them to work at a level similar to Fedora packages,
but will need to be prepared for some churn and possibly incompatible
changes.
