To do what?  The Everything trees don't contain bootable media.  They are just
package repositories.

The users on rawhide-f12 installs will hit that if they want to install
packages, but that is no more load than them just hitting rawhide for packages.

It's certainly possible that users will rsync the Everything tree, but they
won't be able to do much with it.  Is that the usecase you're worried about?
