That's exactly what was done with vlc-0.9.x.
Updates on 0.9.x appeared only in rawhide along with my personal
repository for F-8/F-9.
Serious regressions were tracked and ripped out.

I don't come back on you  explanations, you've just said that the
current repository wasn't designed for suches behaviour which we known
I was suggesting to duplicate the buildsys (cvs builroot etc) to
another repository as described here:
That's not a problem with following Fedora rules, but covering the users needs.
