Not really what I had in mind
What's planned if I understand it correctly is some automation to have
koji spill vanilla kernels in addition to fedora-patched ones

What I'd like to see is a spec template where you can just list the
upstream patches & config options you need, and mock-build locally a
kernel package that integrates nicely in Fedora (all the debuginfo,
devel, etc subpackage stuff)

ie kill the multi-arch multi-flavour automation, just build a simple
single version for the user system

The use case is when you hit a bug, open an issue in upstream's
bugzilla/mail LKML, and people ask you to try vanilla kernel X with
patch Y and config option Z on.
