My suggestion was more about that you gate the action of downloading and placing the firmware in the correct place in the filesystem on a post-install user action and not one second before?

Yes, the entire driver package can be downloaded from the Microsoft Update Catalog (search for xbox net).
A direct link to the appropriate download also exists: http://download.windowsupdate.com/c/msdownload/update/driver/drvs/2017/07/1cd6a87c-623f-4407-a52d-c31be49e925c_e19f60808bdcbfbd3c3df6be3e71ffc52e43261e.cab
I would have already implemented the firmware download and extraction process in the Makefile, but the maintainer of the Debian package told me it wouldn't solve the licensing issues (not sure if that's true).

@DataDrake Done. I'll have to admit that it was a bad idea to include the firmware without permission in the first place, but here we are.
I hope Microsoft will let me know of their decision before taking down the whole repository. It might be a better idea to completely remove the firmware.bin from the repository right now.

Hi, maintainer here.
I'd like to remind you that I still haven't received a permission from MediaTek and/or Microsoft to redistribute their firmware files.
See this issue on xow's GitHub page. Therefore, I'd advise you to wait for their official approval to avoid any legal issues for Solus.
