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.
