IANAL and IANDD, but I think it cannot go into contrib. To go into
contrib it needs to be DFSG-free, which it isn't, as the license
doesn't explicitely allow modification of the source-code (just
distribution and usage). This violates DFSG#3.

non-free could be OK, because the license allows redistribution...
