With respect to copyrights, the core system is the same as the main  
distribution.

WRT copyrights, we have four areas:

  Completely free stuff, main distribution
  Stuff that has problems with distributions, non-free
  Stuff that's not completely free, but has no distribution problems,       
    contrib
  Stuff that we cannot distribute, nowhere

And I think adding more distinctions would be very unwise.
