And the option to have an kernel in Debian main that is not
distributeable by law and that could cause everyone's license to use the
Linux kernel at all being terminated (GPLv2 has no automatic
reinstallment of rights) if someone of the many copyright holders
brought it into a trial is much better?

Because that is the current state of affairs if there are things without
source in the Linux sourcecode...
