The technical committee is empowered to make a decision when asked,
see 6.1(3).

Dear technical ctte, if you are able to come to a conclusion on this
topic, please make a decision as to whether the social contract requires
non-free documentation, firmware, etc to be removed from main before

You've thus been asked, and thus been empowered to consider the issue as
you see fit. 

If individuals on the technical ctte do not wish to take part in such
a discussion, or do not wish to make a decision, or wish to defer to my
previously mentioned decision, or whatever else, that's fine, naturally.
I don't see much point in arguing about procedural technicalities though.
