Livna will never be a 'standard' include with Fedora, Karl. It contains packages which some lawyers argue are in violation of U.S. Copyright laws. If Fedora were to include links to such a repository in their distribution, they could open themselves up to lawsuits, since Fedora is U.S. based.

But note that there is nothing remotely illegal about the nvidia driver, nor would there be any problem with the fedora project distributing it themselves if they had any reason to care about the user experience.
