Then put the nonfree and tainted stuff on a separate non-installable 
CD/DVD containing only those packages, and have the installer provide an 
option to use either that or a network-location nonfree/tainted.  The 
magazine can distribute the base DVD, and those who want nonfree/tainted 
can simply opt to download the second ISO themselves or have the 
installer connect them to a network nonfree/tainted repo.
