Like renaming, I don't think this will be enough.  We already have seperate
directories and it's not working.  Use apt as an example, it would require
a seperate line in the sources.list file... clear distinction.  use ftp as
an example, it would require a seperate connection, not just chaning
directories in the current connection...

True, but it contrib is 1) non-debian (but non-debian.debian.org???) and 2)
very closely tied to non-free.
