One way to start would be 

- look at the developer rootfs (it includes the package db). I think
this info is also available from package list, which enable you to
create your own packages (sometimes also refered to as black list ;)
- cross check with the ones available in maemo repo

You will get the number of binary only packages. This gives a start
Would be interesting to know the number so we can quantify what % of the
total is closed binary only. On top of my head that number would be less
than 5%. How about Maemo team ??? Any takers :)
