I'm not opposed to hosting this but perhaps phrasing the question that 
way is taking it out of our hands.  We can say "We have/don't have 
space/bandwidth/manpower to do this" but whether it's something we 
should be doing seems to be a goals question that belongs to the Board 
to decide.

PS: fedorahosted can contain things which aren't directly related to 
Fedora.  Hosting videos of linux-fest talks on the torrent server would 
be a different type of resource but not necessarily a different category
