The problem for me is:
1) 3rd party repos mean a tremendous effort
2) 3rd party repos means not being able to ship them for all Fedora
architectures.
3) The packages also have a Windows based user-base.

Having them in Fedora would have avoided 1), 2).

It also would have helped the upstream projects behind the packages and
would have helped to decrease 3) - Fedora missed this opportunity.
