Question about latex package

Many of the latex package's files contain these lines (these
particular copied from preload.dc in latex_2e-7.deb):

%% You are not allowed to distribute this file.
%% For distribution of the original source see
%% the copyright notice in the file preload.dtx .

I see nothing in the copyright file that says we can distribute the
files, only the source (in this case preload.dtx).

I am pretty sure we are inline with the 'spirit' of the latex3 team's
intent, but it might be nice for someone to look a little further into
this to make sure.
