What's the rule for dependencies of 'contrib' packages?

'muffin' isn't allowed into 'testing' because it depends on 'jdk1.1', which isn't in Debian.

But 'muffin' is contrib. I thought that 'contrib' packages were allowed to depend on packages not in the Debian archive.

Or is the rule that all dependencies of 'contrib' packages must be in 'non-free', in 'contrib', or in Debian? I didn't see any such rule.

Perhaps a clarification is in order?
