My tuppence worth:
Mageia should not distribute non-Free code.  However, Mageia could
provide a wizard to enable users to easily install audio and video
codecs and utilities from online repositories at Zarb.org.  That way, it
is the responsibility of the user to check his own legal status.

The Mandriva install system does not make it easy enough.  It requires
that a user figure out which codecs and stuff he needs, which is a kind
of a black art.  I have done it many times, but it is painful.
