For FC2, one advantage of staying closer to mainline is going to be
that arch support should for the most part be at least as good as
mainline.
Getting FC1 up to scratch on a new arch requires much futzing with nptl
and a bunch of other patches. For FC2, the biggest thing to contend with
is exec-shield, so even if patches from the ppc/ia64/amd64/whatever tree
are needed, it's a lot less work to fix up.
