Actually the answer was in the Fedora Core 4 release notes. I quote:
"If you wish to add MP3 support to XMMS the Fedora Core 3 version of xmms-mp3 will work for now until the FC4 version is available. Go to http://ftp.freshrpms.net/pub/freshrpms/fedora/linux/3/xmms/ and download (save to disk) xmms-mp3-1.2.10-9.1.1.fc3.fr.i386.rpm. "
I have no idea how this fixes the license/patent issues but I did it what they said and now my music plays.

Yes, fedora has in recent times shipped without MP3 support. It used to 
be that the livna yum repository was the place to get mp3 plugins for 
the various media players. There is documentation on their page 
explaining how to install their software.
