I guess there won't be any deltarpms to update from F11 to F12, so
afaics it would be enough to only switch back to gzip payload for
everthing that is going into F12 updates(-testing). Is this true?

Then we would still save space on the iso images and for the Everything
Repository, but deltarpms would still be possible.

We'd need a mass rebuild to all pkgs in rawhide/f12-candidate to shake Xz out of the payload compression.

That's non-trivial.
