What, exactly, is the point of removing non-free from the social contract,
if we're not going to remove non-free entirely?

Who, exactly, would vote for removing non-free from the social contract, but
not from the archive?

I think it's very far-fetched to claim that a GR to remove non-free from
the social contract isn't a mandate to remove non-free from the archive.
