Yes, I think all of these things are tolerable, so long as the files
are in fact redistributable (which depending on the licence they might
not be).

I think that if we want a more convenient and reliable way to avoid
them being used during the build, we should have a way to make
dpkg-source remove the files from the tree as it unpacks the source.
