Flathub is not a central repository like npm, but rather one flatpak 
repo. It works similar to pacman in that flatpak only uses the repos 
provided. While it would be hard to create a your-freedom style 
flatpak, there could be a completely free flatpak repo to use instead 
of flathub. Purism is interested in getting one of these set up for 
PureOS,
and I've mentioned the idea of splitting Flathub's nonfree apps off 
from the free apps
so an FSDG-compliant distro could use Flathub in the #flatpak channel 
on freenode.

Parabola could also set up a repo or work with one of the mentioned 
parties to address the situation.
