Debian (along with the FSF) still, to the best of my knowledge, consider 
the RPSL non-Free. Until this is rectified, including RPSL licensed code 
in any large Free project is going to result in a sufficiently massive 
shitstorm that using another media framework is significantly more 
likely to happen.

Simply put, without massive technological advantages, the pragmatic 
benefits of using something other than Helix outweigh the bad feeling 
that using it would cause. If you're serious about wanting Helix to be 
integrated into Gnome, then concentrate on alleviating that bad feeling 
rather than simply stating that the OSI have approved the license - 
there's a very large set of people who trust other bodies more when it 
comes to determining the Freeness of something.
