Yes, we can very well distribute a software in non-free that requires
the user to do whatever funny thing the license author wants from him.
It is the users problem in non-free if they can follow that or
not. Debian does only require the distribution rights, and I do not see
how they are affected in such a thing. How much sense it makes and what
I personally think of license authors (hint: nothing good at all, DO NOT
WRITE ANY NEW LICENSE, DAMNIT), is something else.
