I acknowledge that the outcome of this situation may be considered sad
and awkward.

Nonetheless, if you think about it a little bit, you'll probably
realize that the possible solutions are only two: either the Debian
Open Use Logo with "Debian" is re-licensed in a DFSG-free manner (but
this seems to raise trademark weakening concerns, see
http://bugs.debian.org/587668#45 ), or otherwise any derivative work of
that non-free logo has to be dropped from packages distributed in main.

I think the Social Contract is clear enough on this regard.
Making exceptions for Debian Project's own stuff would seriously damage
the Project's public image.
