I have another question: although we keep talking about the 'binaries'
here, we're actually talking about C source code that encapsulates the
binaries in ASCII text as arrays of C integers. Is that not 'source'?

If it is, and it's the source format that the copyright holder
distributes, then it seems like it is the 'preferred source' format.
