Are you sure this is the case? There are a wide variety of intel
graphics chipsets and not all behave the same. If they were all broken -

We always encourage people to nominate any bug they think may be a
blocker. Basically any time you ask yourself the question - 'hmm, maybe
this should be a blocker' - PLEASE just put it on the list, there's no
need to post to a list to ask people's opinions. We have the blocker
review process to downgrade bugs we eventually decide don't really need
to be blockers, so please do err on the side of adding bugs, rather than
leaving them off.
I've not tried booting a live distro that is not a fedora one as
honest, I'd rather not sully my machines! However, I've not heard of
anyone using Ubuntu with the same kernel and xorg-x11-drv-intel version
having the same problems.
The 'same versions' means very little, really. The graphics stuff in
Fedora's '2.6.31' kernel bears little resemblance to what's in
upstream's '2.6.31' kernel, or what's in Ubuntu's. Fedora's kernel
bits are much newer. Ditto, to a slightly less extent, for the 'intel'
driver: Fedora's tends to include newer patches than indicated by the
banner version number.
