This formulation is better in one sense, as it avoids licenses being too
restrictive. However it tangles the DFSG with the current media we are
distributing our packages on, and I don't like that much.
For example, the "keep the source online" clause of the MPL is
DFSG-free, but the current architecture of the archive doesn't allow us
to obey this clause. The DFSG shouldn't restrict software we can't
distribute because of how we distribute them.
As the two options are valid, I'd like both of them to appear on the
