I'll try to put in a request as you suggest, but since the source isn't available, I'm not sure whether they'll be able to build an RPM. I think there may also be a licensing issue, as I believe everyone who downloads/installs the SDK is supposed to register.
I'm certainly aware of the possibility of borking one's system by working with non-repository apps, but looking over the files suggests that they're not overwriting anything, but only making additions. Mostly everything appears to belong in /opt, with just a few symlinks to those programs that are dropped into /usr/local/bin (and a couple docs in /usr/share). Post install script appears to add a couple harmless entries for "qemu" and "device" into /etc/hosts/ - nothing I'm seeing that should break anything significant.
Anyone have experience with this sort of thing?
Okay, it also installs a couple Python libraries that can probably be installed via Synaptic in the normal fashion if I don't already have them.[/edit]
