Personally I thought people would come to their senses if they flamed
each other long enough... but I guess not.

In practice I guess it's just going to mean that most people end up
putting non-free in their sources.list, weakening the effect of having a
separation between "free" and "non-free" in the first place, and more
users end up confused because lack of hard dependencies will mean the
doc packages don't get installed.

Occam's razor split hairs so well, I bought the whole argument!
