Trademark guidelines allow third parties to sell fedora.
So it may be convenient to keep such a page.

I am not sure what do you mean.
Do you mean we don't need the offline vendors at all?
There are countries, say India where bandwidth charges are exorbitant
and there are vendors who sell it from 20INR.
In fact, we are thinking of promoting them better so to make number of
freemedia requests less.

Yes, ideally they should donate us something.
But the licensing (GPL and most others) and current trademark
guidelines  *does* allow others to sell Fedora (and the codes)

I think if we keep a tab on them and list their prices against their
listing, they will be forced to bring down the prices.
