It really *can't* be included in the same source RPM, because remixes
wouldn't be able to ship the source, then.
However, there's something to be said for including them together in
the same upstream project and generating separate tarballs from the
generic-release is intended to be a template for people making fedora
it is not meant to have everything that is in fedora-release or to even really
be used, the people making the remix should fork it and make the changes they
desire. I have added the base presets to generic-release and removed all the
product sub packages.
