If Fedora really cared about its users back in the day of Gnome 3.0 and KDE 4.0, it would have pushed back and told upstream a big fat "no, we're not going to ship this half-baked garbage until you make it parallel installable", and perhaps helped upstream with the effort. Otherwise the value proposition of a distro is rather questionable, if it's simply a mudball that shovels anything that "upstream" spews out, with a bit of sprinkling on top.
Given the fall in popularity of Fedora, and the current soul searching going on with the Fedora.Next effort, I do hope that it realises that Fedora is actually the upstream as far as its users are concerned. Passing the blame around that breaks are someone else's fault doesn't fly these days: people are sick of it, and droves of them have moved onto Mac OS X just to get a stable environment.
