Having a non-free and a non-cd branch?

Hi there.

The more I am think about it the more it seams that having a separate
non-cd branch (to include packages that cannot be distributed on cd rom)
and a non-free branch (to include programs that are ok to distribute)
seams like a really good idea.

The reason being there are many good programs in nonuser that are almost
free except they have some restrictions when used in a commercial
environment.  Mysql is a good example of this as it is free unless you
develop a commercial application using it.  Another good example of this
is the Qt toolkit that the VERY nice K desktop is designed around.

Has this idea been discussed before and if not what do you think of the

Thanks in advance.
