Hi Didier,
  I stumbled upon these bug logs myself during last week-end. IANAL, but
FWIW my own summary of the issue is the same as yours, thanks for saving
my time in posting it here yourself first :-)

Let me just comment on a specific option, which lays pretty much at the
intersection of SPI/DPL responsibilities.

I've been looking into this option, as I would have loved to simply
propose "let's re-license the 'with' logo under DOUL". Unfortunately,
there are concerns that doing so could be interpreted as "naked
licensing" [1] the Debian trademark.  I still hope to find some
DFSG-free way out of it, but the issue looks tricky and I seriously
doubt it can be solved in time for Squeeze.
