I don't understand concretely what the scenario is.
Who is doing what?  Who is deciding what?

The FSF won't officially base anything on Debian, because we don't

for the reason we don't.

Not solely from that!  The container would contain other programs
besides Emacs, and our ethical concerns apply to them too.
