That's what we try to do right now.  I am pretty much coming to the
conclusion that "High Polish" can't really be done as an add-on.  You
need the ability to make the whole distro change (eg, what ubuntu does
to debian).  If we want Fedora to be a competitive desktop, we need to
make Fedora a desktop.
