My take away from the discussion so far is that the current board would not accept
anything that 'automates' access to such external software. Doesn't matter if
the metadata on the ISO or not.
The only thing that I can see flying with the current board is a system that is
'blind' to what it is offering, just like
a web browser.

Sure. Given we're so close to the UI freeze for F21 we'll have to
either punt this to F22, but I think that's fine unless F21 turns out
to be a long time coming.

It might be as simple as just getting the software center to download
something like this at runtime:
-- i.e. it's metadata, but metadata that's downloaded at runtime
rather than shipped with the package. That example is a web-app, so no
repo configuration is present, but it would be fairly easy to add a
EULA text and some repo parameters to that XML format.
