There is no way that the non-free software option should be outside the expert install. It's not a simple black and white situation and if Debian place that option as part of a typical install, they're effectively endorsing non-free software - which is not what Debian is all about. Users who don't like that, can switch to any one of the plethora of Debian derivatives some of which happily bundle FOSS software and non-free in one big repo and include all of the kernel firmware in the installation media.
