There seems to have been a tendency throughout this discussion to determine
_policy_ based on the _practice_ of the FSF. Doesn't anyone else think that 
this is the wrong way to proceed?

With no disrespect to the FSF, I think that Debian should decide its policy
by considering the merits of competing arguments. It shouldn't write policy
in order to keep any particular package or packages out of non-free.
