isn't commercial, so it doesn't apply here. The first sentence even encourages redistribution/modification, i'd think? How much of a problem is the restriction on commercial use, when non-commercial use is free?

 Many of Debian's users are commercial entities. That's why the DFSG forbid
discriminating between fields of endeavo(u)r (meaning, a license that says,
for instance, "noncommercial use only" or "not for atomic weapons testing"
or "use in the trade of oil or oil-based products requires payment of a
0.5% royalty" isn't valid for Debian).

Of course, none of these guarantees hold for non-free; the only thing that you can rely on for a package in non-free is that Debian has permission to distribute it.
