Are these really significant issues for a significant number of users?

Not many people go looking manually for packages, since there are many
tools to do it easier (yum, PK, repoquery, etc.).

The repos are automatically configured with fedora-release; how often
are you configuring yum?

The only time I have to care about this is if I'm writing a kickstart
file, but it is one extra line (and then I copy the same kickstart base
over and over).

I don't speak for anybody but myself - that's enough trouble.
