The choice of words in this text that you cited indicates a desire to

The FSF manuals are all free documentation by our criteria. We are
the ones who first started to say that documentation should be free,

However, you cannot expect us to follow your choice if it differs from
ours. Ultimately we and Debian may simply have to disagree.
