I know You've already set it up, and may want to ignore me, but there it goes:

Yep. It should contain only free software, or it should be easy get warnings 
for non-free software.
Also, it should be easy to discover the licence from the package name, even 
better if I can search packages from licence. Probably, the person who 
creates the package defines the licence, but it would be nice to have some 
mechanism to change it latter.

If it is easy to see the licence, I don't care if you include several of them, 
but you should remember that non-free licences aren't standardized, so if you 
include them, you can't simply enumerate. Some free licences aren't 
standardized either, but you can ignore that and just enumerate the more used

So it's not free. You still can get something like that from Creative Commons.
