It's not about dependecies. I was check it twice. See below.

After the very long trip inside the debian-cd and simple-cdd - I recognize the problem:

it's only because "non-free" field in Section of my package. The debian-cd is too smart and strip it from the first CD image.

Workaround is quite simple. Make "Section: misc" for example instead of "non-free/misc". 

Any suggestions how to bypass the problem in the future? How to tell debian-cd not add the non-free package to "exclude" file?

With best regards, Vlad Shakhov
