I suspect (though I could be wrong) that the the problem is that if it's an "EULA", in that the user must agree to it before using the software in question, we have to force them to agree to it before using it. We can't guarantee that. a) I don't know anybody in Debian who would advocate forcing the user to do something that they may or may want to do, and b) even if it was attempted, there would be ways around it. At least, not having participated in any of the prior discussions, that's what I can see is wrong with the terms you mentioned.
