Well, now you are, but you certainly didn't make that clear.

Since you seem to prefer arguing with, well, anyone instead of having
a clear and comprehensive discussion, let me try to reformulate your

Add a second repository, managed under the umbrella of FESCo, which
can hold packages that violate the basic tenets of the Fedora project
in some way (specifically those prohibiding sale for profit) but which
still permit us the freedoms of redistribution, reuse of source,
modification, and others necessary for the reasonable maintanence of
the project.

That's at least a starting point for further discussion.  Perhaps you
could flesh out a more complete proposal in the Wiki and present it to
FESCo for further discussion in a more appropriate place than the
-maintainers mailing list?
