Possibly (but I would rather seek to replace the font with a DFSG-free
one, rather than keeping the Open Use Logo with the "Debian" text
non-free...).

I am Cc:ing the current DPL, he probably can explain the rationale.
Dear DPL, please take a look at the following debian-legal thread
http://lists.debian.org/debian-legal/2008/11/msg00048.html
Could you please clarify?
Thanks in advance.

Of course, it's possible that this announcement will be included in the
next "Bits from the DPL".
Anyway it seems that the logo page was last updated on September 25th,
which means that the logo was relicensed no later than on last
September: I expected that a move to (partially) address a
long-discussed issue would have been announced in a brief message
somewhere...
