The following is not a rhetorical question:

Are you saying that you would be amendable to the idea of a DFSG that is
slightly modified to make it more applicable to documentation as well? 
(Considering the differences between software and documentation I pointed
out in a previous post)  I would have no qualms about "Debian Free
Guidelines" or even a DFSG that was not tied to a source code view of the
world (and spelled out that it was not just for software).
