PLEASE try to understand that different definition of important
freedom involved here.

You should said instead:
        However, Debian discourages the usage of non-free software
        according to Debian and GNU but the FSF encourages the usage
        of free documentation according to GNU, non-free according to

That way, things are less obvious. 

But I wonder which goal we are reaching with these "removing" games
