He _did_ state that to my satisfaction:

   The new version of the DFSG, as proposed by Ian Jackson, would have
   disastrous consequences on the public image of Debian, and would lead to
   a split of the free software movement, if not Debian itself.  I'll take
   the time and sketch how this step would be received/seen by the public.

When I read his post, I understood it to mean that he didn't adhere to
these opinions, but that they could easily become public opinion of Debian.
