Maybe, but there's not really much difference in result most times.

Do they? FSF don't claim it's a free software licence, but that the
desire for it to be one isn't sensible (or something like that).

Anyway, yes, non-program licences and patent-related problems are
things where debian-legal has a slightly different opinion to FSF
leadership, but most aren't about those, licence proliferation is
bad and we've done "what licence for text" to death in the archive.
