IANAL, but this strikes me as DFSG, specifically section #6:

6. No Discrimination Against Fields of Endeavor

The license must not restrict anyone from making use of the program in a
specific field of endeavor. For example, it may not restrict the program
from being used in a business, or from being used for genetic research.

It seems to me this data should be removed from the package's source and
that this is /not/ fixed upstream.
