For better or worse, Debian doesn't require that arbitrary projects be
able to collaborate. [There are Debian subsets -- e.g. GNU -- which do.]
There is language in the social contract that leads in the direction
of requiring that abitrary projects be able to collaborate, and maybe
eventually there's a slight chance that the social contract will
be restructured in that direction, but that would be a long, slow,
Far more likely is that eventually we'll have another tier between main
and contrib for software which is compatible with the social contract
but not with the GNU license.
