At least in the case of Evince, it is true that not every PDF feature is
supported yet. However, I believe it would in Fedora's best interests to
fix the issues in the Free (libre) alternatives so that using AcroReader
would no longer be required, rather than let that proprietary
application direct further progress.

This sort of situation has happened previously. For example, when Fedora
13 was rawhide, there was a major update to the X.org/OpenGL stack that
broke the Nvidia and ATi proprietary drivers.
