The official packaging guidelines say Fedora follows the Filesystem
Hierarchy Standard, and as I read FHS /opt would be the most
appropriate place to dump this mess.

opt is the right place to dump messes and is good enough for ISVs with
no ambitions but Fedora does not package messes so you have to try
harder.
Easy, he's here because he wants to do the right thing, and he's not upstream, so there's no reason to clueby4 him just yet.

You might do what apache does and simply place the files where they go, then symlink them to a conf directory in /etc . You'd be doing it on a much larger scale than apache, but until you get upstream to suck less, you at least have a precedent for it (though doing it for apache hasn't particularly encouraged them to change their goofy-as-hell recommended file layout).
