I hope I was able to clear things up a bit.

This is my first attempt to package anything or distribute anything on Gnome-look so if my description was a little unclear I apologize, I've taken your suggestions into consideration and you'll notice I made a few changes to the description that I hope will clear some things up. (and sorry for the double post of my response before, internet was being a bit flaky).

I understand your cause for the RPM concerns as well, the only reason I did the RPM was at the request of the original author of the Bisigi themes. He has the original Ubuntu files in a DEB package and has an apt repository for them, I can only assume that his intention with my RPM files is to do something similar and make a repository for Fedora users.

1)What does the Metacity actually look like?
-- The theme contains both the GTK and Metacity themes (I think, like I said I didn't make the theme, I'm not familiar with the differences)
2) What does the icon theme look like?
-- The screen shot I have included shows the icon theme to some extent, I will see if I can get a better layout image of all the icons together, I don't have on right now.
3) What GTK theme does it work well with?
-- See response to #1
4) Can we have it in proper packages (e.g. .tar.gz) for installation through the Appearances app on a per-user basis instead of packaging it in an RPM that needs root/sudo access?
-- The "Fedora Source" is the TAR.GZ file you were looking for, if you un-tar that file it will contain an icon folder, theme folder and wallpaper folder that contain the tar.gz files you can point the appearances app to for installation.

Hope that helps, like I said all I did to this package was rebrand it with the Fedora icon in place of the original Ubuntu icon and package it to an RPM. If you don't have root access the tar.gz file is going to be the best option for you but unfortunately RPM files can't be installed as anything but root and therefore can only be installed to /usr/share/(icon|themes|backgrounds) and not the local users folder. - Nov 24 2010
