So if any of the hardware that requires non-free firmware to operate and
currently works in etch was to not work with Lenny, then that's
completely unacceptable?

If that's the case, then there is no way EVER to make Debian comply with
the DFSG since you aren't going to get free firmware for all those

Maintaining support for most of that hardware through the use of
non-free can be done.  Maintaining support for all that hardware through
only main is imposible and unrealistic.  So a demand of no regressions
is just insane.  Debian shouldn't ever have worked with that hardware in
the first place in the case of main only installs.
