What do you mean by "on the record"? Do you mean in terms legally
binding as a license?
If so, why haven't they done this yet? Are you suggesting no one has
raised the license issue with them? [If so, I think I can dig out mail
from a year or so ago where basically they said that they know that
there's a legal problem there but that they didn't intend to pursue it.]
If the terms are not legally binding as a license, what happens if/when
the license changes hands? You want everyone who distributes debian to
assume this legal risk?
Anyways, it's poor taste, at best, to violate someone's license.
