As I wrote several times already others groups like the Fonts SIG or
Java packagers chose to do it the right hard way by themselves, and to
my knowledge you're mistaken when you state there are numerous
precedents justifying the games SIG expediency first policy (for the
record I don't consider fonts content but others disagree). There are
numerous precedents the other way should you chose to consider them.

This is not to say the situation is perfect in Fedora, but it's nowhere
are bad as you paint it, and games are the only coherent group of
borderline packages I know of.
