	The actual wording is:

     We acknowledge that some of our users require the use of programs that
     don't conform to the Debian Free Software Guidelines. We have created
     "contrib" and "non-free" areas in our FTP archive for this software.
     The software in these directories is not part of the Debian system,

	They may be packaged according to Debian policies and
 practices, but they are not part of Debian. Is this not the
 distinction that the original poster was trying to drive?
