I do not see a need to change the FSDG, unless they are to be designed
to approve distributions such as Debian. The freedom to choose is only
real freedom if the options are free. If the FSDG are changed to trick
the user into thinking that if is free by choosing nonfree software,
they do not support the user at all.

The real option is that Guix server downloads the upstream sourcces and
then the host the sources with only with free software for its users.
Otherwise, it is as free as any other distro because users can remove
nonfree software from any distro.
