Can mcrypt be stripped/legalized a similar way as openssl is done?

In some PHP project, I have faced missed encrypt/decrypt php functions.
This is due to an appropriate php module (php-mcrypt) is not compiled
under Fedora because of legal issues with mcrypt package.
The mcrypt package itself looks similar to, for example, openssl. Both
have illegal things in their upstream. To distribute openssl, Fedora
deletes all the problem code from it (and makes an own tarball).
Can mcrypt be distributed the same way? In other words, whether
"accurately cleared mcrypt" can be added to Fedora Extras?
