The argument raised earlier, that although these games are DFSG-free, they do
not fulfill the requirement for Debian main being self-contained holds, imho
(lutris ignores the Debian packages and installs copies of the games from

That is something that I dislike, independent of the main vs. contrib discussion.
If lutris gained support for the package system, and the ability to install free
games from the distribution's repository if available, I think it should definitely
be moved to main (I will probably open a feature request upstream for that; it might
not even be too hard to implement).
