Is there a reason why those interested in supporting blob-dependant hardware
can't make a release that includes those blobs?  As per SC #1 they can't refer
to it as "Debian", but they can use the project's resources to build and
distribute it, and there can be healthy interaction between both codebases.

What I mean to say, is that there's no need for end users to jump from one
edge to the other.  A middle ground can be useful too.

  how) you may access your data; but nobody's threatening your freedom: we
  still allow you to remove your data and not access it at all."
