There are practical problems, e.g. the unsigned rpms from koji are not 
accessible in a trusted way, which they would be if there was are certificate 
that can be verified.

Maybe there can be only little harm done in a mitm attack against koji. But 
why should a use wonder when he gets an "bad" certificate for 
admin.fedoraproject.org? He already knows this from his experience with 
koji.fedoraproject.org, so this seems to be normal for Fedora for him and he 
may just accept the bad certificate.
