It doesn't take a wild imagination to guess that if any proposal to
remove non-free passes it will either involve or lead to some sort of
process to help people transition away from non-free or, much more
likely IMHO, to move it fully intact outside of Debian.

I think that might mean bug tracking addresses in control files that
can be switched to a different (non-Debian) location and a changed
line in the sources.list and some process and policy type decisions.

So far, people seem to be taking the position that it will better to
first vote on whether or not we're going to move in this direction (a
super majority decision) and then, once that decision is made to focus
on the details.
