The GPL special exception doesn't care about "part of" vs. "not part of".

What matters there is "accompanies".

And, a number of web sites are configured with non-free accompanying main.
If we could guarantee that none of our mirrors accompanied main with
non-free, then it should be ok to put that kind of software in non-free.
