The desktop spin is the bad idea - A desktop/Single user/single seat
system is just a setup of a modular OS/set of packages, just as is a
"universal server" or a "dedicated server".

I am pretty certain many Fedora users use Fedora for both situations and
consider a "mere desktop spin" a waste of time.

It is not. 
- Otherwise EPEL would not exist.
- Those using RHEL @situation X (eg. @work) not unlikely are the same
people running Fedora @situation Y (eg. @home)
