Instead of arguing here, why don't you ask Docker Hub why they require non-free 
software for such a trivial task and try to convince them to not do that?
*That* would better promote free software than having Emacs hosted there while 
ignoring the non-free aspects of the system.
A much better way to spend your energy in my opinion.
