GSM firmware is still not open-source though (as that would make
phone not suitable for legal usage in USA)

I'd like to see a law link that says you cannot legally use your own
open source GSM compliant stack to communicate over a GSM network.

Since the GSM f/w controls a radio, and thus the power, it may need a
FCC certification.  In which case you would need someone to finance
the certification every time a new version of the Gnu firmware is
released (FSF perhaps?).
