i thought the same at first, but actually that's not the case. The user is 
still asked (by the package) if she wants to accept the licence. (As no 
preseeding takes place.)

So there is only the issue of having the firmwares accessable in the first 
place, which should be preseeded/preseedable just like using non-free.


P.S.: should this be moved to a proper bug?
