For what it's worth, we don't do that. References I'm aware of:


Packages in main can build packages in contrib, provided they don't rely
on any non-free packages to do so (so you can build a data installer
package, eg, but that's about it).

So non-free stuff can't be included in the main source package, and
non-free stuff can't be used to build a package in main, nor can it be
generated from a source in main.
