I want criteria so these political decisions can mostly be made based on
Parabola policy and not vague ideas and long discussions.

If the Social Contract is all criteria there is for libre, then that
would allow a) some kinds of non-free "non-functional data" such as not
fully free art (cf. the Free System Distribution Guidelines [1]) and it
might also allow b) SaaSS like Firefox Hello. While Stallman describes
SaaSS as taking away freedom, I fail to see how the FSDG make it
forbidden, so Hello should be allowed in libre.

The Social Contract also says nothing about nonprism. I think my
proposed criteria for nonprism are appropriate.
