kaffeine and xine-lib-extras-freeworld

after struggling some weeks to get video and sound running in kaffeine 
when using DVB-T TV, I coincidentally found a notice in some forum that
installing xine-lib-extras-freeworld could solve my problem. And indeed, 
it did.

So my question: Why this package is not installed together with 
kaffeine? Well, it's not on the fedora repos, but I found it at the 
rpmfusion site.

Weird: "rpm -i xine-lib-extras-freeworld" says:

"This package contains extra codecs for the Xine multimedia library.
These are free and opensource but left out of the official Fedora 
repository for one reason or another."

Anybody knows the reasons for that weird policy?

Kind regards
