We stopped doing that for kernel packages. The problem here is that,
without doing that the binaries will stay but without source
code... that will be a GPL violation AFAIK.

Or I didn't understand what you're proposing or I don't think your
problem will source the GPL violation of lack of source code of
binaries. That's what I don't think it'll solve.
