Moonlight needs to go to RPM Fusion anyway because it needs to link to
FFmpeg, unless you want to use the proprietary codec pack from M$ (yuck!).
So it's no use arguing about whether Moonlight itself is patent-encumbered

Then don't use FFmpeg. And since Moonlight itself will not contain the MS codec pack, it can still fit in main Fedora repositories. If you don't want to do that, then find someone knowledgeable in GStreamer to write a GStreamer media backend for Moonlight.
