Current BOINC applications (SETI@home, Astropulse - of which I am a developer) are GPL but are not of much use without BOINC. Would they go in 'contrib' for now?
If they are linked against BOINC, they will need GPL exception clauses, or they can't be distributed at all. If you can add that, then they can go in contrib (and boinc in non-free).
This is really an appropriate topic for the debian-legal mailing list.
