imho the point is different. Why we penalize a GPL software putting
into the hell of ``nonfree.debian.org'' ?

If we would take a sort of Dante's Comedy metaphor, we could compare
the main part of debian dist with the Dante paradise, the non-free 
with the Dante inferno and the contrib with the purgatory, where there
is the certitude of paradise.

I think that we should consider if putting the contrib part 
in the new ``nonfree.debian.org'' host.

please note that this is a literary metaphor and not a religious
