I agree with the FSF when they say: "Debian also provides a repository
of nonfree software".

And even with my idea they could say: "Debian still has a repository of
nonfree software", and they have a point then.
What I want is to make some steps in the good direction: no non-free
software from the debian.org repositories.

I think my idea would make it clearer. But not 100% sure it's worth the
work. Maybe there are other things more important.
