I like this idea, but without mentioning FSF directly. More entities than
just the FSF use the GNU FDL for licensing.


It would be nice if non-free was a simple umbrella for non-free-*.
Possibly non-free/documentation and non-free/firmware?

While the decision of what is firmware, documentation, or other should
be policy-guided, it would be left to the developer to decide which
category best applied.
