I think the answer to this is that if people are interested in it,
and are willing to do the necessary work of:

 - Testing
 - Fixing problems they find

Than it can be a feature of Fedora; it's not something that, as far as
I know, Red Hat is going to spend engineering resources on, but that
doesn't constrain the possible features of Fedora.

(rpm -Fvh * doens't really quite work, but yum, apt-rpm, etc. can make 
a closer approximation to what the installer does on an upgrade.)
