non-free is one of the easiest things for mirror operators to drop,
if they want. All they need to exclude (essentially) is pool/non-free
from the mirror scripts. (pool/non-US/non-free if they mirror non-US,
dists/*/non-free, if they want to be thorough and not have confused users)

This is much easier than not mirroring some specific architectures
(like GNU/Hurd), or not mirroring some specific suites (like potato,
unstable and experimental).
