maybe you are newer to Fedora than me

what you describe is what was changed around Fedora 7

* Fedora Core: Only Redhat
* Fedora Extras: Community

not that i say that was bad *but* it was changed intentional

you can turn and name it how you like but at the end of the day it would 
mean going back to the state of Fedora Core 6
