It fails DFSG item 2 at minimum. It also fails ftp-master policy that
all source files must be buildable on Debian (they don't yet require
that source files *are* built on Debian).

Long-term, this issue will go away as JavaScript is replaced by
WebAssembly, which is not possible to mistake for the preferred form
for modification as it is binary and always automatically generated.
