Yes, this is the right way to react to the problem.

If we believe in free software, now the author finds a piece of non-free
software, we should remove it at once. This could our image of
"gNewSense as 100% Free distribution"

If we think the author is wrong, we should find some standing arguments,
and fight back.

However, I think the logical of the post is right, apio is non-free,
gNewSense should remove it at once.
