The discussion about fonts, closed and semi-closed data formats, and
data formats which are inherently lossy and for which we lack the
lossless source files has not really started yet.  It will take months
until Debian agrees on policies for these cases, and further classes
of non-programs which aren't on the radar at this point probably
exist, too.

It's extremely shortsighted to think that this is just about
documentation and firmware.
