A couple of thoughts...

 o  Is "Frontpage" a trademark?

 o  A google search on mod_frontpage shows several reimplementations
    and lots of security issues as the main hits...

The first might be an issue for fedora.us (we want to be careful about
legality); the second is more an issue of taste and might keep it out
of Fedora Core even if it went into extras, from a concern for security
standpoint.
