Hypocrisy is a strong word, but there is a tried and true concept in software development: eating your own dogfood. The public calls this "walking the talk."
If the FSF isn't willing to recommend Debian to people, they should drop it and use something they are willing to recommend. If they are willing to acknowledge that these third tier distributions they do recommend are not for production use, then they should elaborate on how to avoid using non-free software while still using Debian and state that this is a way to use a free system. (These instructions are all of three sentences long, right?)
From an organization as dogmatic as the FSF, this is what I expect.
