I can imagine that there are more candidates than the ones in
non-US/non-free now.

A while ago, I offered to sponser a package which was in woody, but
which has since been pulled from the archive. It sat in non-US/non-free.
This is the only reason why it didn't happen; I can obviously not upload
a package to a non-working archive. However, it did prompt the upstream
developers to see whether they could get rid of the non-free code (which
is, of course, a good thing). They didn't finish that yet (as back then
wasn't the time to prepare a new release), but if nothing changed,
they're still considering to do so.
