Of general interest: perhaps not. But if there is some extremely cool, 
show off, kick ass, make you want to go and stick Fedora on a machine 
this second 3d gl demo (that isn't too big), that could be installed by 
default ;)

However, the size is tiny (16k+16k) for gears and info, so for a GUI 
install I reckon it should be included. It's at least a basic GL test 
tool which is proof of GL before trying some games / screen savers etc.

I'll file the request if there is any one else who would agree its needed ??
