I referred to the possibility of installing vim under $HOME/bin,
for one user only, you. (This is possible even if user is root). The
other users use stock /usr/bin/vim, but you'll use vim from
$HOME/bin/vim. The advantage is that it's built precisely to your
taste. Mucking with 1st build takes, maybe, 1/2 hour. Non-first build
is seconds of you net time (that if you package it into script as I did;
it's one command and then couple of minutes of background work).
I don't know exactly how long it takes for changed Fedora package.
But I believe there is gain even in you net time.
If you know the exercise of (./configure
--prefix=$HOME --with-features=huge && make && make install)
it's really easy. (It you don't, it's worth learning anyway.
For myself, I made a script that downloads the latest
vim-src.tgz and builds it all in one invocations exactly with
options I like. Rebuild takes 10 seconds of my net time).
I never come from this point back to stock-rpm-vim.
So, it gives you full control. Quick control. And you don't need to
break other users's vim when you install under $HOME/bin.
I penetrated this barrier once ~ 6 years ago, the barrier between
the stock-rpm-vim and self-build-rpm. I remember my
initial hesitation and difficulties, and I understand your hesitation.
This conversion, it's worth a mass. Just try it once, and
you'll stick with it.

rebuild 1200 [unrelated] packages because of minor problem
with vim rpm.
Vim is special. I believe that being organic extension of
programmer/sysadmin fingers, it deserves special attitude
that other packages.
