I agree with everything you said, but with two exceptions.

There are other differences between TL and Debian. For example, we accept
documents using proprietary fonts, while Debian doesn't, AFAIK.

I don't think TL is bound to follow the Debian rules. However, I agree with your
statement in the following sense: if someone wants to discuss free software
definitions in general (such as what is a "source") and their relevance, there
are more appropriate places than the TL list.

How we apply the rules to concrete cases in the TeX workd, OTOH, is IMO
perfectly on-topic here, provided that the discussion doesn't degenerate (too much).

Otherwise, I repeat, I agree with everything you stated.
