Thanks for asking. The short answer is no. I kept my proposal very short,
keeping the focus on the smallest possible action we can do for helping those
users that need non-free firmware: allowing ourselves to advertise non-free
installers just as visible as our free installer. Moving non-free firmware to a
separate section might be useful, but it is in my view not part of that
smallest possible action. So what's my position on such new section? Well, what
is not mentioned is not proposed and not opposed. That's all. - B.
