I think you'll find that the ones that are missing depend on non-free.
Lyx for example depends on libforms0.89 .  Apt is used by debian-cd to
set up the build and apt doesn't like broken dependencies.

Why would a package be in contrib if it didn't depend on non-free? I thought that that was the current definition of contrib: DFSG-free, but requires something from outside of main (e.g., contrib or non-free).
