A Fedora update policy is being hashed out, and even before that, the 
consensus is really against introducing major updates in stable releases. 
It's not really "anything goes" as your statement seems to imply.

Well, we're not, thankfully, in the same situation as some other distro 
where each third-party repository overlap quite a lot because they 
rebuild, possibly unnecessarily, an entire stack of software. The 
personal repositories I've seen tend to be tightly focused -- Richard 
Jones' mingw porting work, spot's repo for bleeding edge packages that 
rightly are not ready for Fedora proper, etc.
