Fedora 18 is basically closed for new feature work, and instead the 
focus needs to be on integration of the existing feature set and 
bugfixes.  But as you state there is a large amount of time before F18 
releases, which means new feature work would have to stall out for 
months.  Instead, new feature work can begin for F19 and get ahead of 
the game.  That's why F18 and F19 are divergent.  That's why we went 
from a single line of development to two.
