Patch didn't make it trough afaics.
Yeah. I don't know why.

Having been involved with various things around kernel pkgs from Fedora
(including kmods as used in RPM Fusion): It would make a lot of scripts
I used or used a whole lot easier if the stock kernel would have a
flavor, too. So I'm all for giving it a name. Ubuntu, btw, calls the
standard kernel "generic".
In previous discussions with Harald, he just meant having it show up in
the installed files and uname. The actual RPM name would still just be
'kernel', so I don't think it would help you there.
