There is also another side to this, that we either haven't talked about or doesn't know about.
We are a Free software community, that includes some nonfree software. (And therefore doesn't qualify as a Free Software community according to some, but that's another debate.)
A part of beeing a Free software community is that we have a preference as to what kind of software we are willing to work with. That also means that there are software we are not willing to work with.

We could decide that «patented nonfree software» doesn't belong in our distribution.
