I don't disagree, but "correct" and

as much as we wish it were so, we have to work with the rpm we have,

Hmm, I understand that upstream might be less than tractable, but
surely that doesn't prevent us from carrying our own patches that
enforce restrictions that Fedora deems desirable.
I don't like carrying distro-private patches more than anyone else;
but when you're talking about fundamental bits of distro infrastructure,
allowing someone else to dictate our project policy doesn't seem right.
