that's your opinion, but that's not what was said. What was said is that 
main should remain free, and the author's opinion is that calling 
things "blobs" does not makes them more free or less non-free and if 
they don't deserve main, those should not get in there.

it's not about dropping support for contrib/non-free.

And I strongly disagree with you about the contrib/non-free sections 
anyway (and most DD do, since support to the non-free section has been 
voted recently). But that's another topic.
