IMHO you should be honest and call your F-next rawhide, and find some other
name for the "experimental stuff" sandbox. Because your F-next is effectively
what rawhide has been since before Fedora, and your rawhide is what people who
do not care about releng have been trying to turn rawhide into in the past
years. Well they can get their no-rules playground but I don't see why we
should also give them the rawhide name. It has a fine history, much better
than the eating babies ogre caricature.
