I think that this would be a huge mistake. Enrico is a very talented 
packagers he generally is ahead of his time. I was myself sometimes annoyed 
by the peculiarities of his packages, but he always comply to guidelines.

I think that pushing talented packagers that don't think exactly like
the median fedora packager and show some originality is not healthy.
