I'll answer this in one mail each topic to avoid mixed up threads.

As far as I understood there is only one koji instance for all releases 
(will someone from the infrastructure team please correct me) and rpm 4.6 is 
in F10 for quite a while. So technical it should be possible to build noarch 
sub packages in F10. Whether we want to change a lot of packages in F10 for 
that is another question.
