You can use a non-debianized version: the only difference is that
Debian already have qmail users and groups in /etc/passwd & /etc/group
so you'll need to skip most of INSTALL.ids part of qmail setup.  
And you'll need to write a startup script.

I don't know about the copyright, or why using debianized qmail-1.0
in experimental would be different from using non-debianized qmail-1.0
wrt copy rites.  I'm using it, and I've been using non-debianized qmail 
before Christian packaged it, and they haven't arrested me (yet).  :)
