The third point is something we can and should address in the medium term:
so far, license checks for non-free components have been mostly "can Debian
redistribute this" and "can users install this".

Thus, your concern can easily be handled by requiring maintainers and/or
ftpmasters to vet licenses of packages before they are moved to

Indeed, that was the implied suggestion, because the "if you build a collection including non-free stuff, you're on your own" from DSC#5 no longer works when it's us who are preparing the collection.
