Huh? That's not a definition, especially since all this debate is about
whether our previous formal requirements where different to our current
ones. I think there is no difference in the requirements before 2004-003
and after it. Thus, this "definition" is just circular for me:

"all programs must meet the DFSG", "A program is what we require to meet
the DFSG"...
