Well, that would exclude a lot of hardware drivers, and make Fedora pretty useless. (You cannot realistically test Fedora on all hardware on which users want to use it.) In the end, if I need, e.g., a printer, I just have to buy some model, check the model lists upstream (in my example: Gutenprint, HPLIP, etc.) claims to support (for printers, openprinting.org can also be of help) and then hope it works. Short hardware compatibility lists with regularly tested models are not always helpful because the listed models are often no longer available and/or not in the desired price and/or feature range.
