Don't worry about it. There is absolutely no chance that we could ever
do this. It would cause misery for the CD manufacturers, for
one thing. By having a non-free directory we make it possible for them
to easily figure out what they can put on CD and what they can't. Many
of the non-free programs can't be sold.

The second reason is that we're still committed to the free software

No, no point on arguing about this one. It won't happen.
