Could we add a note to tracker or excuses for non-free packages on what
the developer needs to do to get it to migrate?

My understanding of your explanation is that we need to do a binary
upload for non-free because it's not auto-built.

It's a difference from how main is handled and and it seems like
putting documentation for the difference would help prevent confusion
in the future.
