No. This completely throws away all the advantages of GNU/Linux
package repositories, in particular, shared and automatically
resolved dependencies. There is some support for using distribution
libraries, but the more the 0install package relies on them, the
less it benefits from the purported advantages of 0install
(cross-distribution portability, non-root installation etc.). So in
practice you'll end up with A LOT of bundled libraries.

Not at all.
0install can also resolve dependencies using 0install feeds. In
practice the level of bundling is, I'd say, less than in, say, OS X.
I agree that I'd not say it's ready for packaging an entire
distribution, but for specific desktop applications it might be worth
You can install it by using 'yum install zeroinstall-injector', by the way
