The guiding point that a person needs to look at is:
The Fedora Project strongly encourages using free and open source
software. Fedora has licensing guidelines that enforce the following
If it is proprietary, it cannot be included in Fedora. (Binary
firmware is the only exception to this)
If it is legally encumbered, it cannot be included in Fedora.
If it violates United States laws (specifically, Federal or applicable
state laws), it cannot be included in Fedora.
Legally encumbered means is it patented or similarly controlled
information which can not be shared without an explicit license from
the patent or similar owner.
I can't speak beyond this as I don't know if exfat technology is
patented or not.
