Informal nothing.  Quoted from the Debian Social Contract:

8.License Must Not Be Specific to Debian 

     The rights attached to the program must not depend on the program's
     being part of a Debian system. If the program is extracted from
     Debian and used or distributed without Debian but otherwise within
     the terms of the program's license, all parties to whom the program
     is redistributed should have the same rights as those that
     are granted in conjunction with the Debian system.

Thanks for the Gated links - I was kinda looking for it myself :)
