By default, contrib and non-free repositories are not enabled. They are
also unsupported from the security team. They are not part of
Debian. They are an additional service provided to users requesting it

Debian is about free software. There is nothing in DFSG about "free
services". How do you know if a service is implemented with free
software or not? Amazon S3 could be free software, but only distributed
internally at Amazon.
