I'd personally much prefer if the blag folks work more closely to get such changes into fedora directly.  Anyone aware of blockers preventing this?

I am teh blag.

Occasionally I file bug reports and help out in #fedora. Whenever I do a .spec I mail it upstream for them to include as well. The BLAG packages should generally rebuild fine in fedora's mock, but I don't think the .specs are quite up to your packaging guidelines, haha. And the last "big" project I worked on lead to a bit, um, well...

I'm not sure that fedora would want all the blag/freeeee changes or not, but it may give the project some food for thought, especially the forthcoming freeeee draft which I should have ready this week. Installing 30+ packages with yum, playing video with the camera, mplaying another video, editing files etc, encoding 270 meg song to ogg, pidgin, firefox, etc. all running simultaneously while playing a song with *zero* stutters or dropouts on a teeny little computer. That rules. But doing that requires jack-audio-connection-kit, which I don't think fedora would use as a base--this shows what is possible *out-of-the-box* at least.... (with 100% F___ S_______...)

Oh, I also did a crufty offline version of wikipedia with a reader formatted for the 1024x600 screen of the eee 900 (and 901/1000, but i dont have those yet). It is based on the kiwix project.
