Your whole discussion is tied to the argument that since we are
potentially breaking non-free drivers, noone would use Fedora. I can't
see how we can have the discussion now without considering the premise.
No, this was the proverbial drop of water that made the bucket flow over
(Dutch proverb). The thing I want to discuss is the general impression
that Fedora Developers (both RH and Community ones) are loosing sight of
end users and are doing things purely on their technical merits even if
this hurts the end users.

arguably some other people lose sight of all users but themselves...

the 7.1 update adds a lot better support for radeon and for Intel video
and even 2D nvidia... Intel video has a market share of about 50%,
radeon of about 20%.... that's not numbers you can ignore in the "you
ignore the users" comment. To some degree NOT doing this update is
ignoring the users.

Users who want this support are free to upgrade to FC6 once it's released. That's how new features are usually introduced, in new releases not in past ones.
