DSC, section 5:
We encourage CD manufacturers to read the licenses of
software packages in these [non-free, contrib] directories and
determine if they can distribute that software on their CDs.
Thus, although non-free software isn't a part of Debian, we
support its use, and we provide infrastructure (such as our
bug-tracking system and mailing lists) for non-free software
how excactly did you want that even more friendly to non-dsfg software?
I find it all (also the part I didn't quote) very friendly.
