I'm fairly certain the plan here is for us to provide a .xpi that would
run on a mono-less machine for SL2.  In other words we're going to
bundle the runtime bits we need in the .xpi.

Of course this doesn't detract from the fact that the "Moonlight" pieces
inside Mono are completely non-existent except for a few dlls that are a
subset without any changes of some other dlls.

All of the moonlight specific code is in the Moon repository.  Of course
if Fedora has decided on this inane stance, they're going to miss out on
all the Gtk.Moonlight awesomeness that is forthcoming.
