Indeed, there is no reason. There is broad consensus that this is fine
as long as we keep shipping firmware-free images in main.

Maybe the reason why Debian doesn’t do so “officially” is that people
prefer to whine and initiate stupid votes rather than sticking their
fingers out of their arses and just do it?

If there really was a need for it, such images would already exist. If
you have a need for it, then just do it. And since you’re a DD you can
do so “officially”.
