That's irrelevent: If you read the ITP, it's clear that Adam is already
aware of this, and wants to package it for non-free, to which the DFSG,
naturally, does not apply.  However, the text of the EULA sounds as if
we are not even allowed to redistribute it in non-free, and that's the
important point.
