I think you haven't understood the point. Imagine a Sun-initiated
server control tool contains code contributed by ThinClients
Ltd under CDDL, is packaged in debian and you are a ThinClients
Support Agent for debian through some support agreement with
ThinClients. As far as I can see, you could offer ThinClients
Support Agent services for all of debian, apart from the control
tool, more or less.  How would that make sense?

I'm not saying that "Debian service agents" would necessarily be
affected if they ever exist.

Please attribute my words to me in future.
