If they all works this way, there no big bug, they just have make sure
the packages will be correctly listed as non-free.

I checked at least flashplayer-nonfree and it does not seem to build
any debian package at all. In fact, you have a ruby script that do
what dpkg and apt-get would be doing if flashplayer was debian
