Thanks for your reply.

Just to clarify, as this was raised on the devel list, but seemed to die
a quick death, what's the difference between a firmware image and a
picture image.

For example, why can Fedora include images that can't be modified under
a FOSS license (for example Fedora Artwork) but can't include firmware
images which are in essence images that can't be modified, but more
hardware than software.
