Yes, I have to agree with you: doing nothing when someone needs help
and I am able[1] to help is non-ethical.

So if we don't package and distribute non-free package, we act in a
non-ethical way, as we are able to do it, and there is people who find
this helpful.

Yes, but if we reject to distribute non-free because we are busy with creating a free replacement or with working on/packaging of other free software we are acting in very ethical way without necessity to compel ourselves to actions which lead to described non-ethical situation.
