Because I need to replace the set of repos contained within that
package.

Doing that buys me nothing.  Because fedora-relase contains more than
just the repos, I have to start with the base package for each release
or I risk missing out on things like system-release-cpe or changes in
the way keys are handled.  So I would still have to check
fedora-release out of CVS, copy the bits somewhere, modify it for my
custom stuff, and build it.  That's actually another step over just
doing the checkout, patching the fedora-release spec and doing make
noarch.

Either way I'm rebuilding fedora-release.  If the only issue is
whether I rename the package, I'm not going to bother.  Now, if the
repos would be split out so that I can provide my own without having
to mess with fedora-release, then that would be ideal but my use case
is pretty narrow so I can understand why the suggestion did not
manage any traction.
