Nothing major like this gets changed on whims. This change was done to
solve real world problems.

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/ConsistentNetworkDeviceNaming

The special forum is just linux kernel mailing list and fedora devel
list where this was broadly announced and discussed. All major features
follow the feature process
(http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/Policy) and gets voted upon by
the Fedora Engineering Steering Committee which itself is a body elected
by the Fedora contributors. If you subscribe and follow fedora devel
list, you can follow all such discussions in the future.
