My concern is this bug makes Fedora 11 a no-go on systems that are running as display
drivers or kiosks where there as a real need for poweroff == never, screeenblank ==

Right, for now the priority/severity fields are totally ignored. (I'm
working on a proposal regarding that, you'll see a mail soon).
The bug was set to block F11Blocker for a while, but Matthias disagreed
and changed it to F11Target (which is the 'nice to have but we won't
delay the release' tracker). Personally I disagree, but I'm not
comfortable getting into a revision war with Matthias over it. Matthias,
did you make that decision knowing that it's affecting a lot of people,
on AC as well as battery power?
I would agree with Matthias here. This isn't a data loss bug, and it's
something that has a fairly easy workaround for now, and can easily be
fixed with an update later. If everything else was fixed and only this
bug remained, I wouldn't slip the release date for it.
