Older AirOS versions (<5) were home-rolled Linux 2.4 distributions, where most things are OpenSource and delivered with the SDK, the exceptions being a few Atheros blobs and some userspace programs.
AirOS 5 is a customized OpenWRT, with Linux 2.6, with a specialized init and user interface.
The proprietary blobs in AirOS 5 are: Atheros blobs, Ubiquity userspace and kernel blobs.
The amount of binary blobs is limited in any case and Ubiquity hasn't gone out of their way to make it hard to customize the system.
