As I commented in the actual ML thread, Fedora releases must not be forced to align itself with nVidia's schedule. The reverse is also true for nVidia. (Read: nVidia should not be accountable for Fedora's release schedule)
Having said all that, the 7.1's release was immanent when 87.62 was released; It would have been wise to consider delaying the 87.62 release, and make it 7.1 compatible.
As for the release schedule, I doubt that this is a nVidia vs. Fedora issue. I'd venture to guess that other major distribution will soon follow Fedora's footsteps and switch to 7.1 breaking world + dog.
