Are there many of these?  If there are (as I suspect) just one or two,
would it hurt to name them?  How do you evaluate the tradeoff between
someone using Debian with a non-Linux binary driver loaded versus that
person using some other Linux distribution or some (non-free?) OS?
Those questions need to be answered before deciding whether Debian
should "do something" about the packages you describe.
