Not really.

It would be easily covered by adding the relevant metadata to a recommended non-free package (we tolerate that for firmware, and only for firmware).

This in no way requires shipping non-free data in the free installer. Nor does it install anything non-free unless non-free has already been previously enabled, and the system where it is running has hardware that would benefit from it.
