No, not really, but ... I would expect the fact RH/Fedora is shipping
*.rpms +x'ed will cause people think *rpms should be +x'ed? 

Esp. WIN-users tend to think so, because they are used to using some
"self-installing packages" (InstallShield etc.).

So, no it's not a biggy, but it's also not nice.
