In developer reference at 4.6.1 Sections
Packages in the contrib section have to comply with the DFSG, but may fail
other requirements. For instance, they may depend on non-free packages.
You can notice *may fail* ...
According to my english any dependency or other thing from non-free is not an
obligation. It is "may" not "must".
