Just a side note: this and

this IMHO should be closer to each other in the list, as they are kind
of related ;-)

Something I still remember:

CON: It abuses a field that is supposed to be used for version
information (which is used for EVR comparison in rpm and depsolvers) for
something else, which in rare cases can have unwanted side effects

FWIW, RPM Fusion has this in it's FAQ for Fedora:

"""
How can I list all installed RPM Fusion Packages

Use a command like this on Fedora:

rpm -qa --qf '%{NAME} %{SIGGPG:pgpsig} %{SIGPGP:pgpsig} \n' | grep -e
855099b249c8885a -e 206f8182b1981b68 -e ad2708448fcff4da -e
4d2a1bdc8dc43844 | awk ' { print $1 } ' | sort
"""

Sould be easy to put that in a bash script and add it to
{epel,rpmfusion*}-release
