I don't think this is a very useful compromise.  If a package is going to be
included in the Debian archive, it should also be included in the official
Debian CD sets.  I think it's a good idea to provide enough metadata in the
archive to let people build localized CD sets that are legal in their
jurisdiction, but I don't think we should be excluding any Debian packages
from official CD sets -- if there are reasons that we can't distribute a
package in main as part of our CD images, we shouldn't be distributing it
from the mirrors either.
