I am *not* convinced that such works fail the Desert Island Test,
but anyway, failing that test is an indication of non-freeness, not
just of non-free dependencies.
Hence, *if* those works really failed the Desert Island Test, that
would possibly mean that they should be moved to non-free, not just to
contrib...
