How is it misleading? As far as Debian is concerned, non-dfsg
and non-free are synonyms. As we define it, packages that fail the
DFSG are not free.
By the way, I am not a GPL person. One may belittle by
disparaging labels, but remember, you _are_ running an OS crafted and
given to you free by a host of GPL people.
GPL persons. Faugh.
