Well, I don't mind the way things currently are, but if people
really want stable/unstable versions of contrib and non-free, then
I'd suggest making "contrib" and "non-free" sections under
stable/unstable just like "admin", "base", "devel", etc. are.

It's still easy for CD makers to remove those sections.  The
only drawback I can see is that if those sections get large
then there is no easy way to subdivide them further.  However,
since the current single-level organization could use some
augmentation, it should be easy to accommodate having non-free
and contrib as sections.
