Is anybody at FE going to do something of this kind? 
FE has been using .fcX and can't easily switch to something different
without further measures.

If a user has "dist" set to "_fcX" it's his fault. He should be knowing
what he is doing

BTW: IMO, the only correct approach to set dist is to let it be provided
from inside a macro/define in /usr/lib/rpm, because users should be able
to rebuild all FE/FC rpms from sources without any "additional magic".
