Well, even if this package _did_ in fact get special treatment (which as far as 
I can tell it didn't, the maintainer just marked it as stable, so it got 
pushed), I wouldn't see the problem. This is the tool implementing the end user 
interface to Fedora's custom spin creation, which is one of the big new 
features in F7, so getting it out as quickly as possible was important!

The "missing livecd-tools dependency on PPC" problem is indeed unfortunate, but 
it shouldn't really break things, it will break attempts to install this new 
package, but nothing more. There's no system updates to break because there was 
no version of this package which did work on PPC.

Last this came up (when the package was already pushed), the answer was that 
livecd-tools was being made to work on PPC, so this problem should soon be 
solved. There was just no time to do this before the F7 release, and making 
reliable i686 and x86_64 live CDs for the release was seen as more important 
than starting development for PPC, so they held off on the potential breakage 
until after the release. (Of course, all this information is second or third 
hand, so take it with a grain of salt.)
