The DFSG says that we only use things in Debian where we have been
granted that right.  We think that standards bodies should grant us
that right, and then we will distribute their standard as part of our
system.  If they don't grant us the right, we won't take advantage of
it, and we won't distribute it.  Nobody is infringing any copyrights.
