That's definitely not true.

One option (the one I thought you were advocating) is to make Activities
just like any other software installed by the distribution package
manager.  That means they'd be RPM on Fedora and DEB on Debian.  Two Sugar
0.84 x86 installs, one on Debian and one on Fedora, can currently push
Activity bundles back and forth with some probability of success.  If
Activities in Sugar-0.88 on Debian are packaged as .deb, then clearly
Fedora will have no idea what to do with them, and so pushing Activities
over the network would no longer work.
