The polititions are purchased by the corporations, that is likely an unrealistic way of tackling DRM. If a device isn't hackable it really doesn't matter which non-free kernel is being used. At that point the kernel is only a marketing ploy. The kernel developers are only looking at the corporations as users of the kernel, the end non-corporate users are not even being considered. Being able to purchase a bunch of devices with non-free kernels is not interesting.
