Yes, but policy is generally sensible, edited by DDs, and each change is carefully vetted. debian-legal, OTOH, claims that not only is the stock MIT/X11 licence 'non-free', but 'it is impractical to work with such software'. It is mandated that all Debian packages follow policy. It is no more mandated that developers run everything past -legal, than that they run every change they make past #debian-devel.
