Why?  Because the community at large doesn't agree with your views?  Boohoo, 
that's life.  Fedora doesn't want to do what you think it should.  Too bad.  
If that is the limit of what you have to offer, well then there are other 
projects down the road which may do what you want.  More power to them (and 
you).  You asked if we could do something, we said no.  We listed why, you 
just didn't read it or agree to it.  I'm sorry.  The project being right does 
not require you to agree with it.  I'm sorry your feelers are hurt, but 
instead of whining about it, either find a venue for your thoughts and 
desires, or come up with something that is aligned with the goals of the 
Fedora Project.
