*  Consistent with the Fedora's focus on free and open source software and
wiki guidelines on not documenting non-free software.  We don't need to
have special exceptions anymore.

* Lower barrier to entry since Ask Fedora doesn't require a FAS account to
contribute.  Any open id login is fine.

*  It allows one to provide more direct and helpful instructions instead of
just vague hints on installing additional software from third party
