Sorry, I had been meaning to reply to this for a while; I've been a bit

hub.docker.com actually loads a great deal of proprietary/unlicensed

The hub.docker.com index alone has ~45K of JS:

  $ curl -s https://hub.docker.com \
    | tr -d '\n' \
    | grep -oP '<script>.*?</script>' \
    | wc -c

It loads a 3.97MB /public/js/client.*.js ("*" being a hash), which
is a minified and concatenated file containing a huge number of
individual scripts, which can be seen by loading it in your browser's
debugger (so long as it has source map support).  Some of them are
shared (and free) libraries, many are Docker Hub code.

There is JS loaded on their account site as well, which the user is
redirected to on login.  I don't have my work account password atm, so
I'm not going to dig into that right now.
