I think these are actually very different cases.  OVM is content which
is useless without code that can deal with it.  There is a lack of
opensource code to deal with it.  Therefore it is useless in our
out-of-the-box distribution.  What you're arguing about here is that
open source code exists whose primary purpose is to download things from
the internet.  None of that is impacted by whether the content being
downloaded can be viewed out of the box or not.

Note that I disagree with FESCo's decision on OVM so I'm not necessarily
any better at interpreting how FESCo's decision affects other packages
than you.
