None of those people were ever mandated by the Fedora project to speak for
it, and the fact their interests aligned with the project ones while they
were fighting for open codecs, does not mean they still aligned once they
gave up.

In other words: Mozilla does not get to keep its backing when it does
U-turns on such issues.
