Freedom issue #1371
[apparmor-profiles] contains profiles for nonfree software
`yaourt -Ql apparmor-profiles`
/etc/apparmor.d/abstractions/nvidia /usr/share/apparmor/extra-profiles/usr.bin.opera /usr/share/apparmor/extra-profiles/usr.bin.skype
and possibly others…

Us not having them also isn't a reason to remove them.
Is shipping apparmor profiles of nonfree software an FSDG violation? It's different than Linux having firmware names for non-free firmwares saying "MISSING /path/to/non-free-file", to which a person might reasonably go in search of /path/to/non-free-file. But the apparmor profile just sits there silently unless you trigger it first by installing the nonfree software.
You should ask firstname.lastname@example.org if this is really an issue.

this reminds me of issue #813
i can see how some mentions of nonfree software are more enticing than others, but it's hard to draw the line based on how discoverable that information is. i think intention is what matters.
in the case of
archlinux-appstream-data, the package only installs icons and XML databases with not much more than application names and descriptions -- hardly more informative than apparmor profiles -- and it's used to feed programs like
gnome-software, which will simply add an "install" button to that information (it has no effect for packages which don't exist in our repos).
