But a Ubuntu user must have the freedom to remove the non-free material easily. The problem is not it's included, the problem is it's included in the kernel package so user can't remove it unless by recompiling linux.

And splitting linux-image in a free-as-in-freedom part and a free-as-in-free-beer part doesn't cost anything. So why not ?
