You need to choose your fights.
Decent Free video drivers on a decent video card is much more important for a Free Desktop then a a Free BIOS.
Also motherboards supporting bios replacements (generally Tyan type things) are pretty much unaffordable. The ability to use a Free BIOS replacement is technically only a boon for people doing things like clustering or need instant-boot-up. The video drivers are more important and Intel helps with them with documentation and such.
As far as open source drivers go, Intel is pretty decent.
