... would "non-free, but legally installable as long as you're getting it
from the third-party source" be a subset of this, or a different category?

The canonical example of this is the Cisco H.264 module, but I suspect
more 3rd-party software falls into this category - for all I know, Chrome
and Flash do as well.
