I'd advise against blindly doing so.

First, try a 'yum distro-sync'. This will make sure you have the newest
versions of those packages that are available in repos you have

Next, 'yum list extras' which will tell you packages you have installed
that are not in any enabled repo you have. If the fc18 ones are in
this, it's probibly safe to yum remove them. If they aren't likely they
are packages that failed to rebuild in the f19/f20 cycles.
