Repeat #507.  Does anyone happen to remember a good, concise archived reply
to these oft-repeated arguments?  (The responses are standard: modifying
standards is useful and acceptable, no practical line can be drawn
between documentation and programs, no solid arguments for why the DFSG
*shouldn't* apply to everything in Debian have been given, and the
rest of it.)  This stuff has been argued to death so many times, I'm not
even sure where to start looking, but linking these posts to two or three
previous responses is probably a better bet than responding to the old
arguments all over again.
