You can make your own multi-fedora or even a multi-distro USB quite
easily. Just make a different directory for each distro, and then
create or edit a menu file for booting a distro and add the live_dir
and root=live:LABEL kernel parameters.

Here's an excerpt from my multi-distro syslinux.cfg:

label f15live
  menu label ^Fedora 15 32bits Live
  kernel /fedora/isolinux/vmlinuz0
  append initrd=/fedora/isolinux/initrd0.img root=live:LABEL=MULTIBOOT
live_dir=/fedora/LiveOS rootfstype=auto ro liveimg quiet  rhgb
rd_NO_LUKS rd_NO_MD rd_NO_DM
