Non-free Linux firmware

For the Aequorea release, we still have to decide how we should handle
the non-free firmware, which is required for some hardware and some
features (e.g. KMS with free graohics drivers).
These are the options we have:
 1) Ship the firmware in main
 2) Ship firmware in non-free, like Debian, and enable non-free by default
 3) Use extra-repo for firmware and enable it by default
 4) Don't ship non-free firmware by default
Is there some preference for a certain option?
