Yes. A lot of people ignore (rightly or wrongly) 2c. Should Debian
ignore it? That's not for me to decide.

What concerned me was that code as copied from another project
(mpeg2dec) without carefully examining the license for that code, and
utilizing the code under that license.

reasonable by other members of -legal, I withdraw it. [Not that it was
ever more than a thought anyway.]
