Michał Masłowski added the comment:

I believe this is the only FSDG-related problem with this package.

We include free programs to extract files from archives made by nonfree
programs, e.g. unarchiver is included for this reason.  I don't consider this to
be a problem, if using nonfree software is not the only reason to extract
cabinet files.  I.e. are there .cab files which contain something else than
nonfree software?
