I agree. While the DFSG has its ambiguities, this is no improvement.
Aside from resolving the ambiguities, the only change I would propose to
the DFSG is the addition of a clause explicitly stating that Debian can
pass a resolution declaring any particular license "in" or "out",
regardless of its actual wording. This would effectively plug all
loopholes and give Ian a chance to talk us into throwing out particular
licenses that he finds repugnant even if they are technically in
