I wouldn't recommend it as a way of life, no. There are sufficient differences between Fedora and MDV that it would not be a smart idea. I meant it only in the case of these packages, which as I noted are rather distro-independent by nature (commercial software for Linux tends to be statically linked as far as possible).
