Now, whether we can get the distro maintainers to add a single line to their list of repos -- because that's all it would take -- is a different issue. But at that point, it's just a matter of the distro maintainers being intransigent rather than any real technical or legal barrier.


+1 adam and to add a bit more … and also at the same time making sure the source is available so people can compute their own signatures and verify the binary matches the open source and the open source does not contain any malware. 

For distributions that distribute source like debian, they can just keep doing what they are doing now in distributing the source. They can distribute openh264 or x264 or both depending on what is needed and what licenses they like. For the same reason they can currently distribute x264, they can distribute the BSD source.
