With the release cycles as quick as they are and the fact that you don't
have to pay for every upgrade, the current system works quite well for
me.  If I come across some bug that really irritates me and a fix is
available, I can very easily whip up my own package with the
incorporated fix and move on.  I can definitely see RHs perspective
regarding such updates as being too resource intensive.  Certainly would
be another argument for the external Fedora Extras/updates whatever type
of repos though.
