the maintainer is willing to do the work, and it would be useful for Debian
users  it can be considered for Debian. Even if it is not DFSG-free, it
might be allowed in non-free.
 In practice, patent or trademark claims could make something not DFSG-free
even if the copyright holder uses a good license. Or, (ala PINE) the
copyright holder could have an odd view of a normally acceptable license.
 If there's already a package that fills the same role, your package might
not be considered useful for Debian users.
