they are somewhat possible.

it really really depends. the main problems might be:
paths for datadirs/users/init scripts
but those can be easily handled by %if 0%{?dist_version}

i would really appreciate if you could first analyze how big the
differences are. and if you _really_ want those differences.

if it boils down to a few %if ok. if not ... we will see how to solve
your problem. atm the discussions feels a bit academic to me.

just my 2 cents
