I see the problem. All those users of the nvidia driver will have
problems to build the kernel module. And what will they search for to
solve the problem: a kernel-source(code) rpm that is will not be part of
FC3 (as it seems).

Don't understand this. How to solve the problem with updated kernels and
the needed headers for those? Add them all to one package and update
this every time a kernel-update is released -- this will be a big
package after some kernel-updates...
