Great news. In this case really may be best solution add /etc/cron.d into crontab package?
I don't think so, at least if  cronie directly uses files in /etc/cron.d.

AFIAK cronie do not use files from it, cronie only provide service to handle jobs from this directory. And fcron will do the same.

It is advertized in the crond man page, so I think it is directly done
by cronie, (and I don't know where it would be configured otherwise).
I can't find any mention of cron.d in man of crond.
$ rpm -q cronie
cronie-1.0-7.fc9.i386

Furthermore, as mentioned above, fcron will does the same in short time.

I thing in any way "Require crontabs" must be in both crons.

Not in the main package.
Not in main package? Is there any subpackage of crontab in Fedora??
$ repoquery 'crontab*'
crontabs-0:1.10-19.fc9.noarch

Or you suppose create new one?
User may want another crontab than the fedora
one.
Off course. What to obstruct the create another one to replace fedora variant? Do not see any problem there.

Furthermore if /etc/cron.d will be included into both crons, do not make this conflicts (if both must be installed on the same machine off course)??

Dir ownership doesn't lead to conflict, on the contrary, it is a rather
natural way to present virtual provides (as long as it is in /etc).
