It seems that we're miscommunicating. In the English I've learned, inducing doesn't mean tolerating whatever unfortunate choices your party may have done, but rather trying to influence your party into doing something they might not have chosen to do otherwise.
So, if the kernel works with what the user chose, no problem in the kernel. But if the kernel asks the user to install something that's known to be non-Free Software, and refuses to work until the user complies, there's a freedom bug in the kernel.
Similarly, Free Software that works on Windows is tolerable, but Free Software that, if started on GNU/Linux-libre, demands the user to install Windows isn't.
