Good point.

My interpretation here is that "100% Free" refers to "satisfying all
our guidelines" rather than "everything we do".  Otherwise, we'd have to
get rid of debian private, and any other form of privacy [for example,
in the context of security], which I don't think most of us want.

However, I think this change would require an explicit statement about
how extremely important that free software is.
