> Problem: The Firebase Android client library is proprietary, meaning FOSS apps can not use it. Apps that do not comply are reported to the user as "using too much battery".

This is simply not true. These two points don't even make a coherent argument, as it's plainly discernible that lots of apps don't use the Firebase Android client library but aren't "reported to the user".

Furthermore, "using too much battery" is not what the notification says. It simply says "is using battery", and even this is avoidable.
