Heck can we *please* get the real RPM Fusion running properly before 
spending much time to discuss things like this(¹). There is enough to do 
for people with spare cycles! Like the package with the mock configs for 
test building RPM Fusion packages. I heard about ten request for it, but 
nobody started to work on it after I ask here a few weeks ago :-(

(¹) I think even the whole spins stuff came up to early...

Check the archives. We right from the start agreed that we might do 
additional repos where things like those you outline can be done *once* 
we have the main repos in place.
