proposal: add Debian and DFSG as an approver for acceptable licenses

Currently we have a notion that licenses should not have -license
suffix and be in DEFAULT_ACCEPTABLE if they are either

  Free according to FSF, or
  Open Source according to OSI

The point has been to avoid TNF and TNF members making decisions about
where the edges are when packages have boutique licenses.

It seems that FSF and OSI aren't regularly evaluating all the random
boutique licenses, which is understandable given the push to tell people
to pick a normal license.  However, Debian does, having the same problem
as we do.

So, I would like to add

  meeting DFSG as determined by Debian, evidenced by inclusion in main

to the list of approvers.
