Thanks to Rahul, that is largely what we have this release notes.
Although it wasn't created as a canned review, it is certainly a
starting point, and appears at the top of the release notes.  In the
latest version of the relnotes, the legalnotice has been moved from the
top to a new section, so the ToC is available and shows:

1. Welcome to Fedora Core 4
  1.1. New in Fedora Core 4
  1.2. MP3 Codecs and Other Patented or Closed Source Software
2. Legalnotice
3. Introduction and Technical Release Notes
4. Hardware Requirements
...

I think this What's New section needs a little more of what you suggest,
and then, yeah, we need to distribute it in advance of the release.

We came really, really close to having this right for this release.  The
relnotes were such a throw-together that we are proud to have just done
them, so the next time is going to ROCK!
