imho it's a special case since w32api has no native fedora packages.

does this means none of the filesystem,
mingw32-filesystem is a bit of a special case: So far we've tried to
keep the 3 versions identical. Probably we should allow them to
diverge, but at the moment I'm not aware of any changes that need to
be made to this package, so it's moot.
w32api, runtime will be updated
in any branch even if mingw update these packages?
Rawhide is for rapid updates. I'm not stopping you or anyone else
from backporting these updates to EL-5 and F-10, but IMHO it
multiplies the work more than three-fold, with no particular gain.
But for packages which have corresponding Fedora native versions, we
really need to keep them in step. Hopefully we can get Dan's
comparison tools working soon to automate this, and get notifications
on this list.
