Why would an official "product" want to endorse "unofficial" repos?

If the working group deems the software to be that useful, wouldn't  
it be better to bring its packaging up to the quality of the  
"official" Fedora repo, and make it more easily discoverable by all  
Fedora users, regardless of whether they choose to use that "product"  
or a spin or a "non-product" install of Fedora?

Just asking what the thinking is here ...
