If you want to go down that level: Need I remind you that the last 
official decision is to not have libdvdcss in RPM Fusion: ;-)

Anyway: Correct me if I'm wrong, but if I understood you correctly the 
it's just source-code that is not going to get compiled? That at least 
here in Germany is not a problem afaik, as long as the resulting binary 
can't circumvent copy protection. But to protect contributors that might 
feel unsafe due to that I'd vote for removing that part from the sources 
(just like we sometimes remove code for decoding mp3s in Fedora).
