In the long run though that would probably cause more trouble than the
small issue it 'solves' depending on how long community-mysql gets
maintained (ie if it survives to F20), if it is orphaned prior to F20
release then transition mechanisms to mariadb in that upgrade, bug and
support confusion with people getting confused between the two packages and
the differences between them and so on..
