Below is the response that I sent yesterday. Sorry no mention of
derivatives. Would have if your suggestion had come sooner:

Thank you for using Devuan and caring enough to offer a suggestion that
might help us. Sadly, Devuan provides non-free firmware if needed so is
not eligible to be on the FSF list. There has been discussion of
providing a libre version that would be acceptable to the FSF but no one
has stepped up to do that yet.
