Food for though, let's discuss.
You didn't mention the IMHO two most important points. They are
mentioned somewhere in the mailing list archives, but for the sake of
the discussion I'll mention them quickly here:
What influence will shipping libdvdcss in RPM Fusion have
1) on the contributor base
2) working together with other parties
To give examples of what I mean.
On "1)": Some people might avoid contributing to RPM Fusion if libdvdcss
is in the repos. I could for example imagine that having libdvdcss in
the repos might be a problem for contributors that work for a Linux
distributor we all know.
But sure, other might like RPM Fusion more if it ships libdvdcss and
IOW: it's a trade off.
On "2)" It never happened, but I once had hoped somebody could work out
a deal with Adobe to get permission to ship the flash-plugin in RPM
Fusion. I'd imagine having libdvdcss in the free repo could be a problem
when talking about such a deal with Adobe.
