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.
