I am a member of the FPC. 

The topic had been brought up there a very long time ago, but it was
shot down. Other FPC members could not refrain from insisting on "change
upstream". Anyway, this topic meanwhile had come up repeatedly on
various Fedora lists, resulting into the "embedded SIG", which collaborated into
producing a precedence (avr-binutils), pragmatically focusing on the
actual issues, to not further close out cross-toolchains from Fedora.
