Which means that as per SC #4 you're welcome to package those firmware blobs
and provide them in the non-free repository.
Which, as per #1, is not part of Debian. What you're arguing is that #4 is
supposed to not only contradict #1, but additionally that this contradiction
implies that #1 is void.

still allow you to remove your data and not access it at all."
