And I see a very good reason contrib to be explicitly excluded from
sources.list. The case you described is not applicable to packages like
msttcorefonts or flashplugin-nonfree, which are completely non-free
with simple workarounds. The contrib section may be an extension to main,
but an evil extension that misleads the users.
