If you mean "those are not strong copyleft licenses" then I agree - and 
am not surprised.

If you mean "those licenses are not suitable for our redistribution" 
then (I personally dislike it but) believe that's not a problem for 
Debian if the copyright holder (i.e. the photographer, I assume) is fine 
with it.
