I don't think you need to wait for the Feature wrangler here.  Just commit it
to the master branch and build for F18.  It's not like kernel, gcc, and glibc
upgrades sit around waiting on a Feature page to get looked at.

Unless there is something that requires a large coordination with other
packages, I think you're good.
