Please don't count me as "everyone."

How is Coprs a benefit?
-Allows easy Fedora fragmentation. Why bother with package reviews ever again? 
Were Ubuntu's PPAs seen as such an advantage because they allowed every John Doe 
and Jane Smith to release packages put together with duct tape? I highly value 
Fedora's packaging guidelines and now to provide a service that does away with 
them is insulting.
-Who is going to police it? People will attempt at uploading binary packages. 
(steam, NVIDIA, skype, etc)
-What's this do over running mock on your local system? Anyone can generate RPMs 
on their own system the same way Koji/Coprs do.
