I'm using OpenGL acceleration in my ATI Radeon card without using any
proprietary drivers. I don't really see the point why _every_ program that
uses OpenGL should go to contrib. Gnash, as well as many other OpenGL-based
programs, does not depend on nothing in non-free.

That's right. The project is undergoing through many changes right now, one of
them is using cairo for rendering and getting it independent of OpenGL.
Upstream also wants to make the code independent of SDL, and use FLTK instead.

Me too, but please remember the project is still in a developing stage, that's
why I'm proposing it to experimental. Please do not consider it stable
software yet, even though it might be useful for some people.
