How about a new section "[partially free]"?
Hi, Debian people!
I think that maybe manuals that only fail DFSG 2, 3 or 6 -- such
as the Emacs Manual -- should not be classified as "[non-free]",
but as something new, between [main] and [non-free], because,
although they are not entirely free, they are at least freely
redistributable by everyone, which is better than nothing.
Of course, such packages would still not be legitimate and
should be detected by something like vrms (although the name
doesn't seem to fit anymore for this expanded functionality. How
about "vbr"?;o) )
