The place where we state our standards about things like this
is the node References in the GNU Coding Standards. How about reading
that, and thinking about what it says about this case?

Thanks, done. It looks like this case is not a violation according to the standards refrence node <https://www.gnu.org/prep/standards/html_node/References.html#References> because the nonfree programs are well known, people who don't use the nonfree programs are not likely to use them because of the package, and people who use the nonfree programs can use the free program that is the package.
