The Fedora Packaging guidelines for quite some time have actively been 
discouraging static linking.  Very few applications have gotten though with 
static libraries.     We have also push to have upstream make shared 
libraries  if they do not  see 
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=196393 as an example.  
yes Red Hat is upstream  so its all the more reason to do the right thing.  
But  this is definetly something that has been on its way for awhile now.

I give a big +1 lets make it happen.
