Again, I think no separating commas are needed.
Nor is current listing style wrong.

No. Just like DejaVu, it's developed from Bitstream Vera.

I don't think DFSG applies here. The file is completely in
modifiable form. The difference with its source is just
But the prohibition of distribution outside the Babel system
may matter. However, thailatex won't be installable nor
buildable without texlive-latex-base, where the Babel system
resides. So, on Debian, it always comes with the Babel
system. Is that sufficient?
If that's not OK, shipping the whole Babel with it would be
too much and would be duplicated with texlive.
