Yes, I realized that. But there are 3rd party Fedora {Core|Extras} add-on repos
out there that have different requirements for kmods -- one could submitt it 
there.

The dual-licensing is not the problem afaics and afaik the details. For me it's
only the "we don't want it upstream" mentality. I think every module should be
in the kernel (see also http://www.kroah.com/log/linux/ols_2006_keynote.html )
and kmod in Extras are an interim solution to fill the timeframe until they get
upstream (and in an ideal world people would get their drivers merged into the
kernel as soon as they basically work) .

Well, one kernel-developer is hightly respect thinks the line should be drawn
even earlier -- see Bug 189400 comment 9
