If it fits the DFSG then it is by definition free, if it is somehow
excessively non-free and still fits then the DFSG is /VERY BROKEN/ and
the DFSG itself can be modified, and yes that is a very drastic measure,
and as such it should be the ONLY way we can decide that a package which
fits the DFSG is non-free..
