Then I assume it'a an oversight that other closed source firmware ships 
with Fedora?

The bluez-bluefw module ships with a GLP license even though the 
firmware that is included appears ( as in I'm email broadcom right now ) 
to be free as in beer not free as in speech.  Without the source code 
it's only Free and not FOSS.

If they can ship free-redistibutution firmware for the broadcom why not 
intel's free-redistribution license?
