Ah I had missed this. Thank you for catching that. 

If Guix is going to use ungoogled-chromium not only as a way to remove
privacy problems but also to fix freedom problems (although it's not
clear to me that ungoogled-chromium actually solves all of the freedom
problems in the first place; an audit will need to be done) then they
will need to be limited to whatever releases ungoogled-chromium
provides, and updated only in lockstep with each other lest other
unknown freedom problems creep in due to not having been
reviewed/audited by the people behind ungoogled-chromium.
