You're seeing a different discussion from what I'm seeing, then.

The important issue, for the purposes of this discussion taking place
on the 'debian-legal' forum, is determining whether a work licensed
under the AGPL is free by the terms of the DFSG.

Arguments for or against are matters of preference, potentially
interesting, but *irrelevant* to the question of whether such a work
is DFSG-free.
