i agree

why making all this mess?

to satisfy the fundamentalists, i would suggest, that you can specify 
in pacman.conf, what licences you agree to and what licences you do 
not agree to. then pacman will know what is "allowed" to be 
whenever a new licence comes up (with a new pkg) pacman would ask: do 
you agree to licence XYZ? licence XYZ can be found 
under /path/to/licence if you want to read it. Y/N? and then pacman 
would add this result to pacman.conf

do not separate repositories acording to licences... that would make 
it quite messy.
