The Debian Project is not the Free Software Foundation, I agree. But they
both stand for Free Software. If Debian uses non-free software, it looks
like it is just paying lip service to the Social Contract. "We want to
make a free Unix, but we don't want to use it."

Perhaps it could be interpreted that way. The word "Debian" alone is
somewhat ambiguous. English tends to have that quality.
