That also solves the problem of a distro wanting to use proprietary
software (which isn't acceptable in Fedora), while the rest is based
on Fedora. (Eg, a distro which includes Acrobat Reader, but appart
from that only includes Fedora packages).

Otherwise, how would you distinguish an "almost" Fedora-based distro
which includes proprietary packages, from another which includes free
packages that are not in Fedora or Fedora Extras?
