Debian has *no* business of telling people what to put on their websites.  
If someone doesn't like the fact that a consultant doesn't list Debian on 
their website, then they don't have to use that consultant.  Suggesting that
we should be filtering out potential consultants based on the content of 
their websites is beyond ridiculous.
