For many of us, it goes without saying that we'd not take a margin
off merchandise we create/sell for our project, mainly because of
our idealism.

However, at the end of the day, all things considered, if Didier or
Person X would mark those items up, say, 5% to cover the incidentals
(not the time spent), then I wouldn't have a problem with that.
It'll certainly help if they were entirely transparent about it,

Note also that there's nothing that prevents Person Y from producing
Debian merchandise and offering it with a more substantial markup.
If people buy it (i.e. the price is right), then everyone benefits…
