There is always injustice. You're arguing that one level of injustice is
acceptable and that another isn't, and you're justifying your
distinction because you think the benefits of providing that information
are greater than the costs of the loss of freedom. But there's no
absolute rational measure of that, in the same way that there's no way
able to produce their own signed bootloader or kernel for free is more
or less significant than the benefit of having an operating system that
users can install without firmware reconfiguration.
You're fine with one level of injustice. I'm fine with another level of
injustice. Both compromise the freedoms that Fedora currently gives you.
