I believe it problematic from the perspective of not hiding things from
our users, but I would agree that moving non-free to a different location
under the debian tree is a good idea.  Note I say under the debian tree
because moving it outside the tree really is going to annoy those who
muirror Debian in places like /pub/linux/distributions/debian (along with
redhat, slackware, et al)
