My view:  "It's a package like any arbitrary other". So, if it complies 
to the rules applied elsewhere, I don't see much reasons why it can not 
be part of Fedora.

I am having doubts on whether it's long-term maintainable (esp. 
security-wise) and would not want to exclude their may exist legal 
issues, but these are different stories.
