Hells, let's add this to the vote as an option. The new voting system
is supposed to be able to handle that sort of thing. Somebody want to
write it as an amendment to the proposal?

Something like "Keep the non-free archive section, but eliminate all
software; make non-free specific to documentation". I haven't
considered whether this is a good idea or not, but it sounds at least
plausible, so let's kick it about a bit (we probably need to refine
what is and is not acceptable for non-free).
