There are 3 documents that were removed from the Debian and its

  From libtheora:


  From libogg:


For that reason, they are also absent both in gNewSense and
Trisquel. I'm working on LibreWrt 2 currently and I wonder how much
non-free are those texts? Are they not good for FSDG distros too?

The number 2's copyright statement seems contradictory to me but it's
probably my bad English:

  are included on all such copies and derivative works.  However, this
  document itself may not be modified in any way, such as by removing
  the copyright notice or references to the Internet Society or other
  Internet organizations, except as needed for the purpose of
  developing Internet standards in which case the procedures for
  copyrights defined in the Internet Standards process must be

1's and 3's copyright statements both point to BCP 78 ( "This document
is subject to the rights, licenses and restrictions contained in BCP
78, and except as set forth therein, the authors retain all their
rights."  ) It is located at and it's

OK or not for a free software distro in the FSF sense?
