There isn't any official Fedora legal policy that is specific to Mono.
Fedora legal policies are not language or runtime specific. I can't
speak for Red Hat (or RHEL) but Fedora has accepted Mono (due to OIN
which you can read more about at
http://gregdek.livejournal.com/4008.html) and Mono applications are
available in the repository and I don't see that changing.
I am the Gnote maintainer in Fedora and Fedora replaced Tomboy with
Gnote as the default note taking application in GNOME due to space
constrains in the Live CD. F-spot (A mono application) is still
installed by default if you use the Fedora DVD image. I discussed these
false rumours in more detail at
Hope that helps.
