No problem about not uploading it yourself if you don't feel confident with it.

Do you have any problem about me asking some other sponsor who does
not consider it to be non-DFSG-free to upload it, or you want to veto
the package for the moment?

If at some point it is decided that it's not considered free, we'd
have to file an RC bug not only against that package, but also against
many others. I'd prefer to be sure before doing it. Asking in
debian-legal, and maybe afterwards in debian-devel if we don't get a
clear answer might be a good option. As a last resource, if we don't
reach a decision, I'll contact ftpmasters to see how to handle this

Go ahead, I think it's better to ask there :)

I guess just forwarding the mail to debian-legal@lists.debian.org
would do, or just writing a new mail explaining briefly the situation
and giving a pointer to
http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-games/2008/01/msg00091.html or
somewhere around.
