Just a litte comment: debian has been trying to do this, and has come
to a screeching halt by now, failing to release a new stable version
for almost three years now, and steadily trying to replace Duke Nukem
Forever as the All-Time-Vaporware champion.

This may not be a problem now, but will be later, especially if
a) more architectures are added to FC
b) failing to build on one arch is a blocker

And all other things that may be said about debian nonwithstanding,
they do have procedures for everything.
