freedoom is rather new:
lxdoom has already been moved to main.
prboom will be moved to main with the next upload once two major flaws
have been fixed.
doomlegacy might not be able to run freedoom, as freedoom should only work
engines based on boom. But according to 264816 it doesn't seem distributable
at all right now.
