If is any worth into it, when the decision was made Inkscape was not 
part of Fedora *Core* and neither now is part of the default install on 
the majority of Fedora spins, that leave us with only one drawing 
application in the default install, OOo Draw, which is not included in 
any menu, so very un-discoverable by common users.
So i think either install Inkscape by default (in the spins related to 
the desktop usage) or put Draw in the menu.
