IMO, a highly counterproductive idea:
* Most new packages don't cause malfunctionals to existing packages.

* Not letting new packages in released versions of Fedora
- reduces a package's exposure to users and thereby reduces
  possibilities to test a package and opportunities to find bugs.
- Renders Fedora less interesting to prospective contributors.
