That's what will happen anyway. In the mean time everybody will rebuild 
those packages privately, and after some time ther will be another repo.
But the time wasted by fedora contributors in doing private rebuilds and 
another repo is worth considering.

Among the fedora extras contributors there are some people needing those 
softwares, so helping them may add resources to fedora. So the real issue
is to compare the cost of providing the infrastructure and the benefits
induced by the spillovers of reduced maintainance costs of non-free 
packages for fedora extras contributors.
