I don't think they need to be included.  

Eventually, I wouldn't mind putting together a lsm package that
contained the raw data - and maybe another package that contained some
tools for manipulating it + link it into dwww (the next version).  So 
there isn't a lot of reason to have the LSM files in each package.

Of course, they do sometimes include some useful information and they
don't take up much space - so they are useful in some cases.
