You do realize that almost every month now you're arguing against
otherwise standard fedora behavior right? This is just another month,
anther argument.

Yes, but I'm not so much arguing against fedora being a testbed and labeled that way as that there is a need for a distribution that uses RH-style administration and is suitable for desktop use (and I believe that requires both a stable OS and current applications).

Fedora did not break anything else in Fedora by an incompatible
update. A Fedora update broke something outside of Fedora.

That was last week - this week it would be all of your disk device names changing so everything you used to put in /etc/fstab would be wrong. But for the person whose device no longer works with the OS, there's not much practical difference in whether it was caused by breakage within fedora or by fedora's refusal to cooperate with anything else even at the level of understanding an interface to be a contract among programmers.
