I agree on this one - this is the only drawback here.

This has been discussed several times here and on many other places.
Even on bug-reports. 

Short version: uses some code where redhat thinks that
this code might be a violation on some others IP - so they remove the
code (or parts of it). I have never seen or heard about a statement
where they explain in detail how and why they think it is that way. But
this is not a big problem - there are other RPMs out there
