Not really. It's possible to use a web browser or a media player only
for free content, and if you don't, you have specifically chosen to do so.

In any case, if we allowed, for example, non-free firmware to be
downloaded at boot, then even though technically we are not distributing
it in main, in practice, we are.

What would the problem with having it in contrib/non-free?
