Nokia's binaries are distributed under an EULA and are not legally
distributable (i.e. they couldn't go in non-free). I believe Mer has
some sort of hack analogous to Debian's game-data-packager, in which the
Nokia binaries are pushed into the installed device by (a script on behalf of)
each user, rather than being available through Mer.
