Maybe. But it is often not only the firmware for hardware. I often hear
people say "Fedora does not have RPMS for Acrobat Reader and Suns-Java?
Suse has, Fedora sucks!" 

Yes I know then there are repositories that have these RPMS -- but AFAIK
the licenses of this softare this is not legal (at least in case of the
acrobat reader -- not sure about suns java).

An of course, solve this problem otherwise (like a redistribution
license for livna.org or something like that) is of course the best
solution.
