My personal ability to disable the cryptographic lockdown— or to
choose hardware where isn't in question— it's the ability of people I
redistribute the software to that is relevant.

If it were not then I could simply answer your desire to ship signed
binaries with "Just disable that option on your computer, tada, no
problems". If thats not a viable an option for Fedora as whole, it's
not an option to someone who is executing the rights Fedora is
required to pass on either.  I don't personally think there is any
ambiguity in this regard the social contract created via copyleft
licenses, if people do then perhaps it's time to strike a new one.

[No disrespect intended, but I'm not point by pointing the rest
because I think the educated reader could easily enough anticipate my
responses from the past thread, we're becoming circular again]
