How do you setup a VM in VirtualBox with a .vdi file?

VirtualBox 4.3.10 cannot open nor import the .vdi file type (which is what you get when you download the Fedora 20 Atomic VM for VirtualBox), and the little information I could find online about working with them was horribly out of date.

Can the VirtualBox VM be distributed in a friendlier format?

You have to add the .vdi as the disk to a machine you've created. The getting-started doc misses that. You don't want to create a new one, just add the downloaded .vdi.

Correct. No issue at all in VBox 4.3.10 on OS X Mountain Lion here.

Can you be more specific? Is this an error message coming up?

I edited the question a bit. Does that make it more clear?

Yes, and I have to first apologize; the set up instructions in the Quick Start Guide were incorrect. I have just updated them. As for the VDI format, it seems to work fine for me.
