I am not sure I agree with it though. Where to draw to the line isn't as clear cut as it may seem at first glance and FSF's positions are not necessarily the community consensus. Firmware isn't the only source of such debates but apparently the most visible but GNU FDL invariant sections is another. One could consider font sources, game data and so on. FSF seems to have a less stricter view in these instances than I would have expected.
Debian's efforts should be encouraged however since it helps with peer review of the standards involved and can bring up out the differences in a more public way. Transparency on disagreements is certainly helpful.
