Seth, I think we all agree to that. There is a list of <flag,context> pairs that causes problems :-). To be more accurate, there is a well-known very short list of <flag,context> pairs that Fedora cannot ship with legally. The point is: the policy is way overreaching. This would be better dealt with on a case-by-case basis, only when we know for a *fact* we cannot ship Fedora with a specific flag. A flag that has no legal issues but may offend someone is not a good enough reason, it becomes an upstream project issue rather than a Fedora issue.
