OK, now that you have asked, you'll be prepared to facing a very clear
answer: NO, NEVER.
It must be strictly optional and even then, it should require explicit
interactive user activation.
I am not willing to accept any unsupervised, non-opt-in data
transmission from any package in Fedora and will prepare a proposal to
change the Fedora Package Guidelines accordingly.
Lucky for me then, I based the firstboot integration off of the EULA.
Its very easy to opt out of.
