Good idea. A short explanation on how to add the proper "excludes=..."
lines to their repository configuration would likely help.

but silently [breaking] things _is_ wrong
In this case, no. Fedora never has and does not support proprietary
software. You knowingly taint your system by installing such things. Thus,
when it breaks, you - and you alone - get to keep the pieces (as is
sometimes said).

Fedora's goal is not to be a stable platform for third-party packagers.
While this may generally be the case, Fedora's goal is to showcase the
latest-and-greatest Free and Open Source software, and not to ensure its
compatibility with proprietary add-ons.
