Indeed. Ensuring that Debian remains free is the primary reason for this

Good luck with that, and I look forward to hearing from you and/or other
FSF representatives soon. I hope it's not terribly much longer, as the
current semi-consensus is likely to congeal into an actual necessity to
remove un-free emacs documentation from Debian.
