> You can literally go download and compile the entire fuchsia kernel, right now.

Only the kernel Google puts out for the development image. I think the parent meant more in the sense of real devices. It is already quite painful to run custom Android builds from source in real devices, where at least the kernel has copyleft protections. It is quite likely that real hardware running Fuchsia will not come with their sources, since Fuchsia isn't copyleft.
