The question about media file was answered in an old documentation
that was apparently not moved to the wiki:

"10.4.5 Non-software data
RMS suggested we accept any free license for images and other data that
are a secondary part of a package that is mainly software."

Can you create an entry in the wiki somewhere?

I'm concerned that he uses anim8tor (instead of Blender, for
instance). This a freeware for MS Woe. If people can't modify or
otherwise freely use the 3D models using exclusively free software,
this is a problem.
