This debate already happened one year ago:


There was no conclusion. Different people have different opinions. In my
opinion, there are different way to consider what's the preferred form
of modification is and as long as the JS included in source is not
obfuscated/minified, it can be considered as a preferred form of
modification, so it's OK for Debian. There are several packages in the
archive which embed pre-concatenated JS.
