What are your assumptions about firmware ?
You do realize that the same firmware that you are afraid of could equally well be embedded in the hardware device itself (at increased cost). Problem solved - it is no longer distributed with the kernel. I presume that you would be OK with that. Why is the same firmware acceptable when it is stored in the device, but not acceptable when it is dynamically uploaded to the device ?
I personally find the whole sourceless firmware issue completely ridiculous.
