You can't force things. If we politely ask people to link back, that's
ok. But I don't think that it is Debian style to require that.

We do regard licenses with advertising clauses as non-free, don't we?

A lot of companies do promotion for Debian by selling Debian systems
instead of the major distributions (which are _much_ easier to sell
since they fit much better into the thoughts of an average suit), or
they even have people working "on payroll" for Debian.
