Well I touched the issue a bit in Debian's wiki:
The whole MeeGo Touch Framework, used also in Nemo/Mer user interface,
is the same as used on Nokia N9. Therefore, a lot / most of the N9's
stack until applications themselves is free (and developed in pretty
open projects unlike eg. Android) with the few exceptions like the
"swipe" gesture itself and a custom compositor based on the free
mcompositor (well, maybe the swipe is in there).
This is my current understanding. Some information may also be
tinkered at http://harmattan-dev.nokia.com/pool/harmattan-beta2/free/.
Notably in other sections the so called "non-free" is relatively
small, although there are a few ogg things in there as well... and
most of the really non-free stuff is in the authentication token
needing nokia-binaries directory.
