I've no doubt.  Still, where in the DFSG does it say that you can have 
unlicensed software (even if it's public-domain) in Debian?

I'm not trying to be obstreperous, or cause trouble.  I'm trying to
point out that you're applying the DFSG in an arbitrary manner.  We
can't do that at OSI, so we need the OSD to cover these cases.  If
there is to be one document describing free and open software, it has
to cover those cases.
