I wish Debian and the FSF would work together to resolve this issue.
It shouldn't be that hard to modify Debian so that `non-free` is only ever
used based on an explicit user request (and to let the user specify
that this explicit request only applies this one time).

Along the same lines, the `non-free` section should be split in two:
`proprietary`, `non-dfsg`, where the `non-dfsg` part would only contain
packages which the DFSG rejects as non-free but which many people in the
Free Software world consider Free nevertheless (basically FSF's docs).
