(If we are distributing it then it isn't firmware. I'll call
it 'peripheral software' until someone suggests a better term.)
There are differing views on two different questions:
Q1: Is binary peripheral software DFSG-free or not?
Q2: What do we do about it?
5. Some binary peripheral software is DFSG-free, some isn't,
depending on whether or not the licensor designates the
binary as the preferred form for modification.
We distribute it in main or non-free as appropriate.
This one has my vote. :-)
