If you believe that not all of the freedoms in the Debian Free
SoftwareGuidelines are important for non-programs such as
documentation, artwork, fonts or other data, you should say so.

Restoring the non-clarified version of the social contract would only
be short-sighted or blind actionism.

If you want to work forward, work on a different solution for
non-program software to be covered as well, in whatever way, so that
there will be a clear direction to go into, and not a dark nebular
that is open for discussion and interpretation again.
