Another repository/branch inside Fedora infrastructure does not
automatically avoid the any of the potential problems that you would
want to lump into "repo fragmentation." You'd have to take great care
in crafting packing policy to prevent any repository interaction
problems concerning dependency chains, conflicts,obsoletes, parallel
installation, upgrade paths, etc.

Define cool.  Does this mean that uncool updates would be excluded as
a matter of policy?
I'm not sure we all live in a world where a PostgreSQL 9 backport is _cool_.
