Which is a problem: It is not easily explained to the
not-*extremely*-clueful (and most of the non-insiders are in that
category) how contrib and non-free are not part of Debian when they
are part of debian.org.

If the end result of this would be that non-free disappears of
ftp.debian.org (wherever it may land, whether under Debian control or
not is not that important) a lot would be easier.

Though I'm unsure whether I'd vote YES (if I were a developer ;-)
