Yes, that's all of them.

About half of them before submitting, which actually did include both
the false positives. For the first case, I missed the license note in
the file itself (there was nothing in copyright), and the second case
was that I used the package in testing instead of the one in unstable.
As it happens, for this particular package, the package in unstable
still contained non-free IETF files, so the bug report was correct.
I pruned a few packages that contained files such as rfc0000* or where
the file was named like an RFC, but did not actually contain the RFC
I'll go through the rest of the files now, to make sure I've went over
all of them manually.
