You show that the same 5-6 debian-legal@ contributors do not believe
that some licenses are free, but I do not see ftpmasters removing
from the archive packages with a choice of venue clause in their license
(I will not believe that they do not know about licenses like the MPL
and QPL).

This is another argument popular among the DFSG-revisionists: "we
already agreed about this last year, so shut up unless you can prove
we are wrong" (nevermind that there is nothing to be proved, since
most of their points are just opinions).
