There's lots of public domain software in Debian; this was never in
question.  He's questioning whether the DFSG, as written, allows it.

It seems to be a question based on the false idea that the DFSG is
intended to be taken literally and without interpretation, though.  The
DFSG is fairly useless without being augmented by human judgement.
