Technically, they are still a license violation, so I would suggest
using both tags when filing RFN bugs.

I have made a few changes: https, use the new list, reference
debian/copyright directly, add license-violation tag.

I think it is ready to add to the bugs section.

I wonder if we should also add a sentence suggesting to ask upstream
to remove the RFN. It could also provide upstreams with the less
desired alternative of softening the RFN it to allow building from
unmodified source and encourage upstream to provide a deterministic
automated build process.
