Advice on copyright for cdf

[Please cc me on replies]


I'm packaging tela, and the newest version uses cdf[1] (from nasa).
The cdf copyright[2] is basically 'only non-profit'.  However, there
is a line about inclusion in substantive product allowint for profit.

Does that aloow us to have cdf it in main?  Either as included in
Debian, or included in the tela package.
