Why linux-libre removes free firmwares?!

Why do you say linux-libre removes free firmware?  AFAIK we only remove
those that aren't.  IIRC all blobs we remove are missing sources, even
though some of them are under Free Software licenses.  There are a few
that have sources available, and we don't remove those.
