I disagree; obtaining software under a DFSG-compliant license agreement
is not necessarily a benefit. Some people feel that the advertising
clause of BSD is a hindrance, for example, but that does not make the
BSD license agreement become non-free.
DFSG has some specific requirements and I think we should stick to them.
Those requirements talk about use, modification, and redistribution,
and those are the most important things for open source software.
