I fully agree. I REALLY dislike them messing with services.

You can no longer just grab the source from an upstream provider and expect it to work on fedora. So if there is an emergency update on the service available, you are still forced to be vulnerable until Fedora developers get around to re-jiggering it for Fedora.
