This is in addiction to my previous email.

The GNU/FSF Guidelines for Free System Distributions 

"Non-functional Data
Data that has an aesthetic purpose, rather than a functional one, may
be included in a free system distribution *as long as its license gives
you permission to copy and redistribute*, both for commercial and
non-commercial purposes. For example, there are some game engines that
have been released under the GNU GPL, and have accompanying game
information—a world map, game graphics, and so on—*released under such a
verbatim distribution license*. This kind of data can be part of a free
system distribution."

This means that if GNU IceCat will include themes or other stuff
released with any non-free license, then it should be threat as a BUG
by all Free System Distributions (such gNewSense, for
example) and REMOVED from them.
