Um, ok.  Do I need to do anything about this?
I'm also not sure this is too important.

It's GPL compliance so yes, it's very important.

  Most of our firmware blobs come from svn repos which can't be submoduled.

The only firmware blob we're not currently including as a git submodule is OpenBIOS. I believe the main reason is that different boards use different commits so a single submodule is a bit challenge. We probably ought to figure something out here though for the next release.

Can anyone comment a bit more about OpenBIOS?

BTW, OpenBIOS is already actively mirrored on git.qemu.org so all that's needed is a patch that does a git submodule add with the appropriate commit.

  And as long as we don't have a consistent policy about it, we can just as 
well stick with the README file.

We do have a consistent policy :-) We're just not enforcing it as tightly as we should.

Any binary we ship in the release tgz's should also have corresponding source in a submodule.
