Since I brought this up to Kevin Fenzi, let me add a concerns I have here:

Just in case, a rawhide snapshot of a spin is actually considered
pre-approved, What if someone takes Fedora KDE Spin kickstart file, adds
the updates repo or worse the rawhide repo and release it as Fedora KDE
Spin?  Rawhide can be quite broken.

One more related use case:

Does the test day images released by the QA team covered by the current
trademark guidelines.
