I don't think anyone is suggesting to create different yum repo files
for different products. These should definitely come from the same
source (the fedora-release package), no matter which product is installed.

This might have gotten a bad start because of the original naming
suggestion. Let me suggest a new one:

fedora-{workstation,server,cloud}

These would be purely for enforcing a core set of packages that are
deemed necessary for the products and for shipping correct systemd
presets files. They are NOT about replacing the yum repo definitions or
gpg keys or rpm macros from the fedora-release package.
