I like this suggestion.

In the context of the current proposal, I would call it something like
'sourceless-uploads' to try to make it clear it is for firmware that
is uploaded to some subprocessor and not run by the debian processor.

Generally, I think the firmware area is a step forwards in helping
more people to visualise the size of the problem/task.

Hope that helps,
