It does, packages in main cannot (Build-)?Depend upon non-free, hence
must be moved to contrib.

If you move linux to non-free (ignoring the blatant silliness of such an
action), every package that needs linux-source would move to contrib.
Say kernel-package, m-a, all the kernel-patches, iptables, ...
everything. And ... even the glibc since it uses linux-libc-dev to
build, so in turn 90% of Debian shall go to contrib.
