Because the policy right now is to only mount hotpluggable drives and
media from drives that accept removable media. Just think about security
implications if you had read/write access to the password database on a
Windows partition...

I thought we agreed that that was okay argument for RHEL, but fedora
it should be turned off in the spec? I'm sure you agree, physical
access to the hardware means compromise of data, given enough time.

This is a bug I've been harping on for ages, when the typical use case
for non-geeks is:

Install fedora on second disk or spare partition and just dual boot to
Linux when possible.

In this case "the windows disk" isn't detected. Bad bad bad.
