You seem to miss the point that software freedom is what Debian is all
about.  Please read http://www.debian.org/social_contract; you might
then start to understand where we are coming from.  Anything not
falling within the scope of the DFSG is not of any interest.

Your many (somewhat confused) posts seem to be asking us to be doing a
lot of relicensing *for you*, but quite what we gain is not clear.
Working on proprietary software is not what we do.
