There is another concern here.  Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) will
likely continue the "no flags" policy, which means that any software
within Fedora that RHEL would like to ship, the packaging will have to
fork, and patches will have to be created.  This isn't Fedora's problem,
but something for RHT to note when it is deciding what software to take
and how much work will be necessary to make it RHEL worthy.


RHEL has to do that even with this policy. The policy doesn't ban flags. It doesn't even banish them to subpackages in all cases.
