Well packages in main should not rely on contrib or non-free?  If you need
non-free or contrib to run firefox-esr on stretch to do your important 
work, then that is my point.  You hack it with a hosts file, okay that 
doesn;t count as a pkg, but the default pkg is a piece of insecure 
You posted your use of non-free pkgs to rebut this? wtf?
