I'm not a lawyer, but I'm thinking of this:

If it's just about legal risk, couldn't the responsibility of the right to redistribute of the uploaded software be moved on the uploader instead ?
So the uploader takes the responsibility of any redistribution of the uploaded software by Debian itself, the same way if he would have uploaded it to a social media are whatever.

That way, the legal responsibility burden is distributed on many peoples instead of a small number.
If one is not sure that the software is distributable, he can mail the upstream maintainers for a clue.
