I have never understood this to be the case.  Our codenames refer to
Debian releases.  Both non-free and contrib are not in Debian and are
not part of the release.  What I've always understood is that the
reason contrib and non-free are labelled 'lenny' is because they are
supposed to work with that release.  I can't see that there's
anything troubling about this at all.  In fact, I always thought this
was self-evident.  Is there really something to be worried over here?
