Well, we had a discussion about "kernels in Fedora Extras" on this list
some months ago. I don't think that we should provide them there. But
that's debatable. And even if we agree not to ship them: planetccrma
could still ship the kernels and we could merge everything else into
extras if possible.

Well, the confusion for the user remains as long as freshrpms, atrpms
rpmforge and livna exist in their current state. I've seen multiple
users that didn't know that repo mixing can result in "interesting
results". Most users hit those sooner or later and ran away screaming to
Ubuntu or Suse.
