Various initiatives are moving towards shared, virtualised hardware resources for their repositories. - Could these (isolated) approaches converge just like federation activities are converging? What can e-Science concepts and grid technologies, which have virtualisation at their very basis, contribute to this? As the somewhat cryptic title indicates, this paper aims to trigger discussion. The Fedora community has already experimented in this regard, and - technologically - Fedora is arguably best suitable to venture further into this. -- We identify steps towards Fedora gridification. However, apart from technology, what about user trust?, and who takes responsibility for those requirements, that may exceed current capabilities of (national) e-Infrastructure?
