I think a case by case basis is just confusing. To make it easy on bug 
reports, there should be a policy to just file it downstream and let 
triagers and maintainers handle it as necessary. This is how some other 
distributions like Gentoo, Debian etc handle it.

Also I have tried to define cases, where Fedora needs to handle it in

This does include both your main points.
