A minor comment: How about mandating that DEP documents must be licensed
under a free license?  It may be useful to be able to include DEPs into
the Debian distribution, as documentation, but if the license isn't
clear that isn't possible.  Further, I don't see any reason to permit
non-free DEP documents, or is there one?


To be concrete, I would add the following sentence in the 'Creating a
DEP' section:

  Note in your DEP the license it is released under, it must be a
  DFSG-free license.

Of course, DEP0 would then need to follow that advice and note which
license the document is released under... :)
