No, I disagree here. At least for "software", we must be allowed to change
the source code. This has been discussed in detail in the last days. Thus,
if this would be "software" (i.e. source code for a program) it would not
be possible to include it in any distribution!

I'm not sure if we can make exceptions for a "doc-only" package.
