Or maybe because there are no such dependencies. Since most people seem to agree that it doesn't make sense to list things like Printer firmware as dependencies, I haven't yet read any concrete example of proprietary software dependency within FSFE. The only example I can think of is Twitter, which hardly qualifies as dependency since the content shared there is also distributed through Free "cloud" services.
