Indeed, but in the other exteme (making GNU FSDG-compliant repositories
for these package managers) requires time, extra knowledge on the
intricacies of each package manager and preferably a coordination to
have all free/libre system distributions contribute to it.

Indeed, some Python/Rust/NodeJS packages are already available in most
free/libre system distributions in the form of the distributios' native
packaging system.

The guideline does already do that, favoring the distribution project's
own freedom to decide which would be the best way to solve such problem.
If the GNU FSDG would be enforcing only one approeach, say, madate
making a free/libre repository specifically for that single-language
packaging system, then some free/libre system distributions wouldn't be
able to focus on their main packages or would have extra cost on
maintaining yet another infrastructure

Since I'm not directly involved in maintaining free/libre system
distributions, nor am I a representative of FSF or GNU, the rest should
be discussed with those. Since the whole message serves them well, you
may simply forward the message to them and they will probably understand
the full context.
