Fedora does not allow kernel modules, and I think RPM Fusion is also the
wrong place for experimental upgrades to modules which are included in
Fedora kernels.

Tend to agree here. Getting the fixes into the Fedora-Kernel is the way forward. As that's what cebbert did with the latest F10 kernels afaics:

$ rpm -q kernel-2.6.27.9-159.fc10.x86_64 --changelog | grep -B 1 -A 5 -i 1.0.18
* Mo Dez 08 2008 Chuck Ebbert <cebbert redhat com> 2.6.27.7-139
- ALSA 1.0.18a
  Dropped patches:
    linux-2.6-alsa-ac97-whitelist.patch
    linux-2.6-alsa-ac97-whitelist-AD1981B.patch
    linux-2.6-alsa-revo51-headphone.patch
    linux-2.6-olpc-speaker-out.patch

thx for that cebbert!

ALSA snapshots are something for an unstable repository,
which neither Fedora nor RPM Fusion have. (Kinda like the stuff in
kde-redhat unstable.)

*Hint, hint:* A lot of people requested a RPM Fusion unstable repo (and I think it would be good to have one), but nobody stepped forwarded yet to lay the groundwork for it -- e.g. discuss layout, rules, infra, and all those other details that need to be sorted out before it such a repo is started.

So in this case, putting them into
ATrpms's "bleeding" repo makes a lot of sense.

Normally yes, but not if the latest Fedora kernel already includes the same Alsa, then providing (nearly) the same in a different place is just wasting time and leads to confusion among users.
