Re: Some thoughts about firmware inclusion.

I fully agree, this discussion does raise one interesting question though: What if there is fully floss software, which we can build from source. Which is written for another OS, but will run fine under an emulator and is hard to port. Do we allow shipping this?

I don't see why not. There's already examples analagous to this in Fedora, for example the CBIOS firmware (ROMs if you prefer) for OpenMSX is compiled from z80 assembly source using sjasm in the RPM. The resulting binary blob is of course z80 code designed to run under the emulator.
