Wouter has a solution in search of a problem.  He wants a GR that will
"define" software and documentation, probably in the Social Contract.

It seems he will settle for nothing less.

I continue to wonder why we should bother.  Passing such a GR just to
shut up people who can't be troubled to think for five minutes within
the context of debian-legal's role within the project doesn't seem to be
a sufficiently good reason (to me) for exercising the weighty GR
