In fact... and sorry to expand on my own point...
This is, in fact, an *extremely important freedom* that we're talking
about here. I've been in the Fedora leadership for a long time now, and
we've made decisions that even *I* disagree with.
For what it's worth, I will *encourage* people to make their own versions
of Fedora that adhere to *their* standards of what Fedora should and
shouldn't be. And we let the Marketplace of Users decide.
