I am a DD for some months and maintain packages in Debian for several
According to  it seems to be hard work to eliminate all concerns. So
lets start ...
As it is very unlikely that Debian will remove non-free and contrib, what
do you think about two versions of Debian. In a first step a really free
version simply called "Debian" and an extended version "DebianExtended"
containing references to non-free/contrib as well, might be created.
For Debian all problems mentioned in  could either be solved or
problematic packages could be moved to DebianExtended.
During installation, the user might choose one or the other version (of
course a recommendation should be made if some hardware needs
firmware packages from non-free) and even switch between both versions
