I did not mean that there is any non-abhorrent non-free software.

As I understand it, a package that makes it into [main] complies 
to all points of the DFSG. However, your proposal will allow 
packages that don't fully comply the DFSG to enter [main], if 
the violation is not too grave. I consider this inconsistent.

So, as there are cases that fail the DFSG, but which are also 
too valuable to be put into [non-free], why should they not get 
a seperate, new category?
