I just feel that if there's enough security concern with some of the
code, then Fedora shouldn't ship that code. Either the code is secure
enough and maintained well enough to ship, or it's not.
Otherwise, don't list this as a justification for the change proposal.
Secure enough to ship ≠ secure enough to enable by default. Every
piece of attack surface that can be removed from the default install
