Why not? Is it difficult to acknowledge that not all people think the
same? Have you noticed that none of the GR end up with 100% on one side
and 0% on the other?

I also argued (on IRC) about the fact that removing some non-free parts 
of upstream source tarballs (like RFC) is not really worth it if we make
sure that it doesn't end up in binary packages.

I think it's a perfectly valid opinion but I know that it's not the
predominant opinion within Debian. Given that I'm not affected by such a
case and given that others are happy with the status-quo, I don't see the
point to start a discussion about this.
