On the contrary, this type of software has been explicitly permitted
by the Fedora Board:

So you are not required to remove it from the package collection.  If
it is possible to split off the porn sites into a subpackage you may
do so, but nothing requires you to.

If you're still not interested in maintaining it, please orphan it
instead of retiring it.  I find this package very useful and would be
happy to take it over.
