I think you're mistaken on both counts -- on where the responsibility is
likely to lie, and on the amount of this 'burden'.

My experience is that _most_ such failures are going to turn out to be
generic bugs in the package; not really arch-specific problems at all.
They'll bite on more than one, if not all, architecture(s); if not
immediately then over time.

The term package is overloaded here. In general the failures are in upstream packages; not the Fedora package glue.

While we want to and should encourage packagers to fix bugs in upstream code, dealing with bugs that are not part of an official Fedora release should never be a requirement for Fedora packagers, IMHO.
