Namespaces are not a problem as long as it remains a strict subset (i.e.

Does your plan mean that FSF volunteers would only be able to introduce new packages by uploading to Debian?

Apart from the GFDL I am not aware of any licences which are DFSG
free, but which do not meet the description of Free Software as used
by the Free Software Foundation. (and there the issue is the other
way round)

As far as I am aware, the FSF only regard programs as capable of being free software, so the above is not true.
