By what criterion do you decide that something is "indeed DFSG-free"?
If such a criterion existed, I'm sure we'd love to know about it. It
would make our lives on this list much simpler.

Again, note that a GR vote only decides *what the Debian project will
or will not do*. Such a vote cannot declare a work DFSG-free; that is
a property of the work and its license terms, unaffected by the result
of a vote.
