Ah, that's just my imagination how this filter could work. If the
filter searches for the license description and if all possible
licenses are known to the filter, then the packagers are fine. Still
the trust on a software filter is not the same as the trust in a
visible separation. If you think there is no technical difference,
this discussion is not just on technical of the issue.

If I go into an empty room which is dark, everybody could tell me that
the room is empty and I can't hurt myself by falling over some
furniture - still I'd prefer the lights on.
