Sorry, I just skimmed through this thread, but as we are talking about a
package for non-free (due do sourceless libraries) that's not a problem,
isn't it?  No problem for a package in non-free to break another clause
of the DFSG while already breaking some.  As long as Debian has the
right to distribute it (including Debian mirrors) it's okay for non-free.

Best regards,
