I agree. Put the data _and_ the reader program on that separate "data"
section. As you say, the reader without the data is almost useless, and
the only use of the reader is to read that data (yeah, I could format my
favourite novel as a fortune file, but that only means that novel will
go to the "data" section as well).

Check above. Problem solved. Easy, wasn't it?
