People are heavily discouraged from reading debian-legal because it's
full of huge amounts of masturbation. It's not -legal's job to define
the standards by which Debian determines freedom - it's legal's job to
determine whether a specific license meets those.

That's unfortunate. However, holding the discussion on -legal guarantees
that we won't have the input of many developers.
