It is not an hyperbole (I guess that you mean exageration by this word), 
it is an example. I used that example because it allows to discuss about
choices. Choices that are done in the fedora community, that have
technical consequences.

I personnally favour the openness to choice, but I am clearly not the only 
one to do such an important choice for fedora. It should be clear, however 
for fedora contributors what is acceptable.

This is very important, in my opinion, to speak about organizational
subjects and not only strictly technical subjects. I think that what 
kind of packages are accepted in fedora is an important question for
the fedora community.

That's possible, but not on purpose.

If this list is not for discussing which packages should be acceptable 
in fedora which list should be used for that? In my opinion this is the
list where the community members like me and you can voice their concerns.
