There's no realistic way whatsoever you can claim that V1.1 of the
social contract allows us to ship documentation that does not meet the
DFSG. I think everyone is fairly clear on that. The project has had two
opportunities to prevent this situation from arising, and has chosen not
to do so in both of them.

Nobody (and I really do mean nobody) has the right to ignore a clear-cut
violation of the social contract because they disagree with it.
