There are two issues one is legality and one is policy.
If its deemed illegal by Red Hat legal to ship.. its not shipped in Core.
If its deemed legal but it is not open source, current Fedora Core
policy.. prevents it from shipping. The Core policy and mission is to
distribute a fully open-source distribution. So even if a vendor
produces a re-distributable closed source binary for a propretary
codec.. its not going to be available as part of Core.
