No, breaking things when that can easily be avoided is not preferred.
Also not in unstable.
Plus some specific *.la files are not meant to be removed at all.
And if I'm not mistaken, removing the *.la files and binNMUing the ones
that depend on them does not work, some of these would just FTBFS,
others could break in unforseen circumstances.
