I believe this is a useful suggestion for the gnewsense, and perhaps
even GNU, website; that is, explaining to other GNU+Linux
distributions what proprietary software the include, so they could get
rid of it, and where their policy documents could be changed to
prohibit the inclusion of more proprietary software, would help them
to become fully free.

No.  I would have them list any and all GNU/Linux distributions and
comment and constructively criticise them in that listing, like they
do with licences.  After all, no-one seriously claims FSF is
recommending the Jahia Community Source License, do they?  Yet it's
there and linked.
