What they said certainly wasn't very convincing.

It's not so much a question of kicking Hitachi as providing scalable
Japanese fonts to our users. If there are more-clearly-free
alternative fonts in Debian that provide the same glyphs, then I won't
oppose removing them. But if removal would entail actual hardship for
our users, I think it is sensible to expect the party claiming
infringement to present a more coherent case first.
