This sounds like a pretty good idea.
Of course, there will likely be few, very large packages. I dunno if
that matters much though. Even if they were finegrained you really need
to update to the whole release to get good testing.

The naming of the packages could also be such that there is no chance of
conflicting with your vendor gnome, current version or later installed.

If we managed to create debuginfo packages we could get nice stack
traces in reports from these builds too.
