I think the package group's mandate is about *how* to package, not
*what* to package and whether it's legal, endagers Fedora sponsors, is
in the spirit of Fedora etc.

E.g. these goals are set from a higher instance and we just provide
matching guidelines. IMO we shouldn't redefine objectives, this needs
to be escalated to <your board here>. Especially if something isn't
spelled out in the current objectives as clear as the
position/distinction towards firmwares and other non-source binaries.
