I think that f-droid already handles that as it probably has the
"Include anti-feature apps" disabled by default.

Here our issue is that even if we somehow removed all the applications
with anti-features we still end up with applications meant to install
software from non-fsdg compliant repositories, like the various
applications meant to install non-fsdg GNU/Linux distributions.

Parabola also has a somewhat similar filter system with the nonprism[1]
repositories, though you need to manually activate them and I'm not
sure if they correspond to "centralized and surveillance networks", but
it should be pretty close if there is not a 1:1 correspondence between
the two.
