I cannot see the Fedora logo at all. I see 2 additional "EFI Boot"
options (I would usually only see "rEFIt" and "Windows", as the
calls my Linux booting through MBR), and both of them take me to a grub
prompt that asks me for a kernel to be loaded.

Did you have a newer version to test?
TC1 is the current state of the art:
with TC1, we think, the live images written to USB with l-i-t-d (use the
very latest livecd-tools you can find) or dd should boot on at least
most Mactels. The DVD / netinst image written to USB apparently doesn't
work (though the new livecd-tools might change that).
There will be a TC2 shortly incorporating a new anaconda and built with
a new livecd-tools; TC2 written with the very latest livecd-tools
(updates are submitted for 16 and 17) should be the best we can do, and
a significant improvement for EFI / Mac booting, lots of bugs have been
squished. Additionally, it makes dd of the DVD ISO to USB 'just work' -
it will pick up the packages on the USB stick without any manual kernel
parameter addition being needed. Which is cool.
So, long story short - we'll be very interested in reports of
success/failure with TC2 (which should show up tonight or tomorrow)
written with dd or the very latest livecd-tools builds for F16/F17:
livecd-tools-16.14-1.fc16 and livecd-tools-17.10-1.fc17 .
