Fedora is not a content library, we cannot ship all the content in
existence, there's just too much of it.

OVM cannot be used with any software in Fedora, so it also does not belong
into Fedora. What's the point of shipping content which cannot be used?

The same rationale is also being applied to MP3 files, which are also not
permitted in Fedora.

but not for the same reason, so the comparison is inadequate.

How about: we don't ship packages of CC-licensed free music in OGG format (even though that content CAN be used in Fedora) because Fedora is not a music library ?
