Well reality is f-r is mostly for checking *current* Fedora
guidelines that in some cases apply only to rawhide. If someone is
running f-r on a system from 4 years ago to verify current packaging
guidelines I'd question their knowledge of the guidelines :-)

It's not impossible to do...I just wonder about cost/value proposition
of keeping the support and spending even more time on it.
