Po Lu is right.

Can you please explain the problem that you're talking about?  If it
is true that LSP inherently tends to use nonfree LSP servers, then
using LSP is inherently a problem, and maybe we should not include
that feature in Emacs at all.

Or can we fix that problem?  Maybe loading nonfree servers is not
totally inherent -- maybe we can arrange to avoid it.

Would you spell out in more detail what you're thinking of?  Perhaps this
would be a solution, but what is the solution, and what is the problem?
