Coordination fixes that. It'd be fairly simple for debian to host a
package name registry, for example.

Wouldn't that count as supporting non-free software though?

I don't think so. The package name registry can be used by, and probably will be used by, free software as well. It just helps people who are, for whatever reason, maintaining apt sources for packages not included in Debian.

I think it's just as likely to be used for, e.g., mplayer as for acrobat reader.
