Not quite: you can run Ubuntu without any non-free components, but you
can't exactly boot the N800 without a bootloader.  For Maemo as a
platform, generally the split is similar to Ubuntu (i.e. non-free stuff
makes use of free stuff, and not in the other direction), but as you hit
the lower levels of the stack, it's not so clear-cut.

Also, the FIASCO generator would presumably have to be opened for this
to happen.
