They don't regard them as "anathema".  They regard them as Nvidia's
problem.  Which they are.  I've used them in the past, and I certainly
didn't expect the Debian kernel group to help me with them (and I
certainly didn't get any help from Nvidia).

So does Linus, and for good reason.  There is no way for anyone outside
Nvidia to know what their closed-source drivers are doing.
