I don't understand.

Either Social Contract section one and the DFSG prohibit the
distribution of a non-free blob in the release, or they do not.

If they prohibit it, then it is an override to distribute
notwithstanding the prohibition.

If they do not prohibit it, then no resolution is necessary.

You seem to say an inconsistent thing: that they do prohibit it, and we
can avoid that prohibition by calling it a "practical consensus" instead
of an "override".  Surely, however, it is the effect that matters, and
not the label you give it.
