Good point. I would suggest that (with permission like you mentioned) we
include only such patented software in the main repos like drivers. And
everything else like mp3 in the tainted.

Especially network-drivers should be included, nothing is worse than looking
for the drivers if you have no network (as I always have to do in Debian).
