They are incompatible. As noted in the thread on debian-devel [1], even
debian's own servers won't run debian any more, because they require
non-debian firmware.

Debian won't run on a large fraction of hardware any more.

(If a binary blob turns a debian kernel into a non-debian kernel, then
that same blob turns a computer running the debian OS into a computer not
running debian).

To restate the obvious: After the transition a lot of current debian
users won't be using debian anymore. (In all likelihood including most DDs.)

Cheers,
Johannes
