Your statement is contradictory.
DFSG-free means that it would be in main. Bastian's question was about 
drivers/firware that cannot be in main.

I would appreciate it if we would not make hard decisions/statements on 
this NOW, but first await the post-etch discussion (or better 
investigation) on how, as a project, we can and want to support hardware 
that is technically non-free in the installer (and thus on Debian CD 
images).

<200609261818.37594.elendil@planet.nl> for my personal opinion on this.
