There *is* a Debian. But it's not a legal *person*, it's a *work*.

It is possible to write up a license that says, for example, that
copies of program X may be sold for monetary gain only as long as
it is sold together with an entire official Debian diskset or an
entire snapshot of the FTP archive.

Such a license would fail #8 because it is specific to the work

                                            the dialysis -- the *analysis*."
