I also believe so. We've been looking for someone to do regularly RPM
packages, but so far, we've just had temporary contributions, which
didn't last much longer than a single release :-(
So, yes, it is a good idea, but we need somebody to actually do the work
of doing the RPMs as a new release is out. Of course, having also RPM
snapshorts would be wonderful.
Are you volunteering for the job? :-))
