There is no "Debian authorities".
There are *members* of the Debian project with voting rights, and those are 
the Debian Developers.
And they have voted in a General Resolution to first enable 'non-free' and then 
reaffirmed that in another GR: https://www.debian.org/vote/2004/vote_002

So what you asked for has already been done.

Actually they are. Debian Developers are the ones with voting rights and the 
(major) decisions are made through a GR vote.

You want to vote too? Do the work to become a Debian Developer.
That still only gives you 1 vote and therefor does not mean you (always) get 
what you want. You'd need to convince enough of your fellow DDs to vote with 
you or the proposal you want.
