Actually, non-free is not Debian as well (as far as I recall), but all
of us consider it part of the Debian project. Honestly, I would consider
the AMD64 port part of the Debian project since it is a *port* and you
can find it at http://www.debian.org/ports/amd64/ . The only differences
between non-free and AMD64 non-free is that AMD64 is not part of the
Debian mirror network (ie. not officially part of Sid/Sarge).

Anyway, I think if package can be distributed by Debian, it can
implicitly be distributed by any of the Debian ports, released or not.
