I think before making rules like this, there is a more fundamental
discussion needed: Right now Fedora has a very explicit goal that it
should be ok for 3rd parties to create physical media and sell that for

This rule originates I suspect in part from the entire "Oh my god Red
Hat no longer makes media" slashdot crowd effect, but as a whole I think
it does make sense.

As long as that goal is there, trying to make a decision tree that
undermines the goal is more or less pointless imo; it's a lot better to
first agree/disagree about this goal and THEN look deeper.
