OK, so you're ignoring the maintainer of the package in question, you
don't think people who view the DFSG as a compromise of freedom and
practicality should be listened to, and you want answers to have
strong ties to the DFSG *and* to be philosophically grounded without
reference to the DFSG.

I think that works out to you not listening to anybody else and nobody
having any reason to listen to you.  Are you sure you want to keep a
position this inflexible?  I'm not even sure why you're posting in
this thread, or subscribed to this list, given what you've said
