Well, I'd say that other distributions do not rebuild the whole archive with itself immediately before releasing, probably because they don't need to -- there are better ways to ensure binary sanity.
If Fedora *wants* to do this exercise of their build system, fine. Their choice. Other distributions might decide that fixing problems which crop up at the last minute (and impact a nontrivial number of users) are slightly more important.
