Debian has software specific to IPods, IPaqs, S390s and Belgium national ID 
cards, to name a few from the top of my head, which are not useful without 
the hardware in question... there was also free software to access ebay or 
other non free services...

And I dont think having 50 or so of such packages in main is turning Debian 
into advertizing crap ;-) That's just so out of proportion what Debian is :)

Regarding the yubico URL, _maybe_ it would be a good idea to use a URL you 
control, so in case the site goes down... but then I guess you would remove 
the software too or update the URL..
