So, how do you do it without the %dist branch? AFAIK then you have to
manually make sure that the EVR in F(N) is greater than that in F(N-1). 

Say I've built foo-1-1 in rawhide a year ago and thus the package is
available now in F-10 and F-11. How do I update to foo-2-1 in both
distros?

Yes, that is true.
