I understand the importance of stating the above in a positive way but I wonder if this statement isn't a little over the top.

Their statement is indeed flamboyant and it is not entirely accurate. This is the 
first time I have seen it. Fedora applied wine-staging to be able to use 
"pipelight", which allows users to view Netflix (a video streaming service). I was 
initially against it, but Andreas decided it was worth adding. I'm CC'ing Sebastian 
to update their page.

We ship users' bug reports off to wine-staging before they make it here.
