It doesn't matter if a piece of software works with non-free stuff, or even
if most of its use, by design, is for non-free stuff. All that matters is
that there exists some free stuff that it works with. For example, the
vast majority of the stuff that runs in Wine is non-free--but not all, so
Wine goes in main. The relative quantities aren't relevant.
(It's not clear whether data beyond the scope of Debian--such as comics
being downloaded--are relevant to this, either, but that's another debate.)
