Not quite.  Texts of licenses and logos typically fail DFSG tests.
Lots of graphics (and probably some audio material, too) come in a
form that can be considered "source code" (because it's not the
preferred form of doing modifications, e.g. a flattened image vs. a
layered one).

And what about research papers?  Do you want to ban them, too, even if
they are directly relevant to one of Debian's packages and help to
understand how the software works?
