Silverlight/Moonlight isn't any more likely to appear in Fedora than MP3 is.
It's patent-encumbered, it cannot be included in Fedora.

Fedora doesn't have to _include_ everything. It just needs to provide working interfaces for 3rd party applications.

You don't need "interfaces" in this case. Download and run it from a Novell site since that's the only "legally safe" option according to

"It only covers 'direct' recipients from Novell, not 'indirect', which would likely exclude those who receive it directly from anyone other than Novell unless that third party is an 'authorized reseller'."
