IMHO it would be the best idea to provide the FreeMedForms binary with
some simple basic but in some aspect useful data. FreeMedForms is free
code and should remain in free if there is any useful data (to
demonstrate its functionality). The rationale for this suggestion is
that you can make Depend / Recommend other packages in main from it.
You can put the "real" data in non-free and the user is free to install
these from there.
