Perhaps my last post in the topic!   :)

to clarify:

gentoo:
loose integration
greater quantity of packages

fedora:
tight integration
lesser quantity of packages

However, if it's about the same quantity of labor to create an e-build as 
to create an RPM, I'm not sure *why* the quantity of ebuilds is greater...

So, isn't some form of, perhaps, tightly integrated build-from source 
type packaging, the best of both worlds?  (binaries for GNOME, and so 
forth, at request a la sabayon.)
