How about "... we provide support infrastructure for non-free packages

Yes.  It doesn't have such an obvious double-meaning.

By the way, RMS is on record as saying that if we do the shell game of
moving non-free off of ftp-master.debian.org to
ftp-master.non-free.org would mean FSF would recommend debian.
but there might be a better mail somewhere.

If anyone wants to try to deal with these cans of worms positively,
I'll support them, but I'm not leading the charge because it doesn't
bother me as much, as long as debian is 100% free software.
