Hum... implementing data...
mkdir data
add data in the available section list of dinstall and apt/dpkg/etc.
The implementation of data is just a renamed copy of contrib or non-free
but with a different purpose. It's a policy thing, nothing else.

I agree with you however that voting on the proposal is bit... too
early. I'd like to see some codes first and some work with the ftp
maintainers for testing it.
