The problem is not if some one can download at home / elsewhere.

People ridicule the very thought that MP3 support has to be enabled with 
an effort and is not available by default.

The ways to enable it very well available on 
http://fedorasolved.org/Members/jpmahowald/non-free-plugins-for-gstreamer and 
works cleanly.

A better approach should be to provide a format conversion software as 
part of the default install DVD/CD or LiveCD which pops up on its own 
and asks for format conversion to OGG...etc. and converts the format and 
plays the music etc.

What do you say ?
