Probably, yes. I made the change I made some months ago after
frustration of building the package for the nth time : A quick technical
change rather than a policy one. But I can't see a reason not to have
the optimized images in the source.
Does optipng take as long to run over an already-optimised PNG and do
nothing as a non-optimized one? I suspect so, meaning we'd need to
rework the build system either to a) not run optipng at all, and rely on
contributors doing it, or b) keep two pools of images, those which have
been optimized (and committed) and those which haven't.
