The real question is it less *distributable*? If its GPL and contains things *not* in preferred form, I'd say yes, that would be less distributable, since its a GPL violation and results in breech of license - which means we can't distribute.
My 2 cents (as a DD),

To take an example that's close to home, the NVIDIA driver packaging is
hosted on Alioth (and has been from before I was involved with it).
I think it is quite unlikely that any of the R packages that Charles is
working on are less free than the NVIDIA proprietary graphics drivers.
