Yes of course but allowing kernels helps get wider testing.  Same as 
or regular updates to FC4 updates-testing repository planned out by Dave

I agree in general but if the community wants to maintain such kernels 
why should we stop them?. The Extras repository has no guidelines 
against allowing parallel installations of packages. If kernel's are a 
exception they should be written policy with good rationale.  I am not 
talking about suspend2 specifically.
