They could be in Fedora but the legality of such software is region specific. If we want to maintain those packages in specific regions as part of Fedora and that is considered legally safe, we could do that instead. In fact I think that's better than a third party repository solution because we would be using the similar infrastructure and guarantee things more because we are in control.

The reason why I suggested pulling packages from a third party repository just for the codec buddy case is that it would be relatively easier to get that done before Fedora 8 (I think)
