I'm not sure I understand it correctly... let's have an example.

Fedora doesn't have 'lame'. RPM Fusion will have 'lame', right?
But You will _not_ rebuild k3b with lame support, because You don't want to 
replace "base" package set (k3b is in base). Right?

Another example: inclusion of mp3 support libraries, but without rebuilding 
audio players.

If this is the case, wouldn't such a repo be useless?


PS. Please clarify this if I misunderstood the point.
