The problem that Kevin is pointing out is - we can't watch every other Fedora 
projects, schedules etc. so closely - it's not just possible as it's big 
project and lot of people. It wouldn't hurt anybody to send quick note to 
kde at lists.fedoraproject.org - "we are preparing re-spin, do you want something 
specific to be included?". That's all.

This is major problem in Fedora these days - bad communication and it's sad 
for open source project :( And one stupid "heads up" mail could solve it in 
90% of cases!
