I disagree. We aren't targeting people that find virtualization
a confusing concept. Workstation is targeting developers and students

No, sorry, you might have misunderstood the PRD. We aren't producing a
distro only for developers. We are still producing a general purpose OS
but we are focusing our own development effort more on making it easier
to use Workstation for development.
We had this discussion already when approving the PRD. There were
concerns that people might misunderstand the wording there to mean that
we are no longer supporting the general desktop user. No; the PRD only
enumerates areas we'll give special focus during development and is not
meant to say that those are the only supported use cases.
It is still a general purpose desktop distro.
Quoting from the Workstation PRD:
"We want to create a stable, integrated, polished and user friendly
system that can appeal to a wide general audience. /.../ This PRD is
not meant to be an exhaustive list of what potential users can or
will use the Fedora Workstation for, but rather outline the
Workstation working groups development priorities and overall goals."
... and goes on to explain that one of those development priorities is
to be attractive to developers.
