To find out which pieces of your machine use non-free firmware, it would be easier to go lspci(1) and such, and look up what you find in a list. Maintaining and publishing said list (with usage instructions, as required) would be a much better use of the time involved, IMHO.
OTOH, with today's hardware increasingly "intelligent", I tend to doubt you'll find anything that doesn't use some non-free firmware, from the keyboard + mouse up.
