The DFSG apply to "The Debian system". The social contract doesn't 
define what "The Debian system" is. We could define it as "What's 
shipped by Debian", but we could also define it as "A system consisting 
of a computer and a Debian installation" or "Whatever is provided by 
Debian and run on the host processor".
