I think you are misunderstanding the proposal. The "privilege"
disappears as soon as anyone provides a technical way to install Debian
on hardware requiring these firmwares. There are already good ideas on
how to do it so it's more a matter of personal investment than time.
This could even - although very hypothetically - be done for etch if
someone did all the required work.
