Um. You've pushed this to F-11 too, though:

 $> koji latest-pkg dist-f12 --quiet libguestfs
 libguestfs-1.0.27-2.fc12    dist-f12                    rjones
 $> koji latest-pkg dist-f11-updates-candidate --quiet libguestfs
 libguestfs-1.0.27-1.fc11.1  dist-f11-updates-candidate  rjones

The preview repo is for packages we choose not to push to the stable
branch (because we want to avoid regressions) which we would like virt
testers using F-11 to play with.

You could think of it this way - there are different types of users
consuming these packages:

  1) Users who want things to stay stable and who aren't necessarily 
     expecting new features until they update to F-12 - these are 
     people with just the updates repo enabled

  2) Same as (1) but who are willing to help out testing updates for 
     the whole distro in order to catch things before they hit the 
     people in category (1) - these people have the updates and 
     updates-testing repos enabled

  3) Mostly the same as (1) or (2), but have a specific interest in 
     testing new virt features and are willing to deal with virt 
     regressions - these people enable the updates, updates-testing and 
     preview repos

  4) People who are interested in helping with helping with F-12 
     development in general, not just virt - these people run rawhide

Since you're making libguestfs-1.0.27 available to (1) and (2), they'll
naturally be available to (3) too.

i.e. it doesn't need to be in the preview repo, right?
