What really is overdue imho are some pages that describe the graphics 
drivers packages better. Some things that come to my mind:

- mention the main differences between a stock driver install and our 
packaging (like file-locations); also mention why we (have to) do that 
and why it's a good thing to do that/to use our drivers
- mention the dangers that people might run into if they use the normal 
driver install
- mention how to debug problems
-- is the kmod avilable for the running kernel and loads (dmesg output)
-- is the driver properly configured in /etc/X11/xorg.conf
-- ...
- a note that we we can only fix bugs in the packaging, and can't fix 
bugs in the drivers, as they area closed
- a note why some drivers are missing for F9 and rawhide
