Although not my most-preferred solution, I would actually be very happy 
with something very close to this.

Namely, something which specifies in addition:

"We consider these to be free works for the purposes of the Social Contract.  
This GR will be linked prominently from the Social Contract's webpage."

This would be clear, honest, and straightforward to Debian's users.
