If you really want to retain your "everything is software" point of 
view, think about the consequences and work on them _before_ starting 
the removals - and provide solutions for them that are available at the 
time of the removals.

Actions mentioned in this thread like autobuilding parts of non-free, 
providing an installer that includes parts of non-free [1] and providing 
a CD with the distributable part of non-free are prerequisites if your 
users are still a priority for you.
