Correct. The license not being readable is a misleading exaggeration but the underlying point is valid. We need review guidelines that enforce this and bugs should be filed against packages which don't have license text in English.

English is no more blessed than another langage.

No but it is a requirement for a legal entity based on US which Fedora via Red Hat is. Official English translations would be required for us to understand and enforce the license.

What if a Japanese license including text that says that the software is proprietary?
