	Not quite. I think, though, I have changed my mind about the
 proposed solution. I think we do need to more strongly brand the
 non-free section, and what is Debian.

	Incidentally, if packages were indeed signed, we could only
 have Debian distribution packages signed; we can have apt/dpkg remind
 people that packages are non free, we can add a header that points
 to closes free replacement, which can be presented to people.
