The kernel part is known an constantly worked on, even upsteream.. If
you should find any proprietary software in main please feel free to
file an RC bug, I doubt tough that you will have success. 

Please mind that Debian itself only consists of main while contrib and
non-free are provided for user convenience (see sec 5 of the social
contract http://www.debian.org/social_contract)
