With this modification, upstream might then include (distributable) win32 
executables (or whatever else) in their upstream tarballs and have them 
distributed by the Debian mirrors network without us taking a close look at 

I don't see why we should only be looking at what we distribute in the 
binaries we distribute and not in the sources: we are also distributing 
"blessed" tarballs as a central part of our free software distribution. If we 
stop doing that in "our" source tarballs, then why should be care about non-
recompiled blobs in our binary packages?
