I don't think is the case. The .orig.tar.gz files only have to be
purged of non-free stuff if that stuff can't be distributed at all.
AIUI, it is perfectly acceptable to have non-free stuff in the
.orig.tar.gz file that is removed by the debian patch.

Simply removing all of the man and info pages is not a difficult task.
If the emacs maintainers can't handle that before November, then I'll
happily consign emacs to non-free .
 Yes, I do use emacs. For example, to write this email.
