What do you mean, "we should also specify using only free hardware
also"?  For our users?  Debian already specifically supports using
non-free software for our users.  For the project itself?  Well, we
still use non-free software (e.g. qmail, glimpse), so before we even
think about "free hardware" (whatever that means) we need to stop using
the non-free software.  Or do you mean as part of the DFSG?  How would
that possibly make sense?  We can't copy and redistribute hardware on
our CDs, whatever the "license" on it is...
