I suspect that a large majority of Fedora users never look at the wiki,
so this would give a very skewed response.

When you say "survey" I had in mind
a "multiple choice" query form -
with perhaps a space at the end for "Any further comments".
Such a form could presumably be read automatically,
so the recipient would just know, say, that 30% of users
had some problem installing Fedora.

What exactly is wrong with asking, or getting, feedback?
The aim of Fedora is to serve the user, isn't it,
not the developer?
