If we decide "hey, let's not distribute them in main at all", I take it you mean. You don't have to distribute pristine tarballs. The xfree86 upstream source includes some non-free stuff, which is stripped out of the .orig.tar.gz before Branden uploads it, eg. I don't have any problem with an .orig.tar.gz that includes redistributable but non-DFSG-free stuff, as long as (eg) the .diff.gz removes those files. Alternatively, if we keep distributing them, then we should move them to other packages (if they're relevant to non-emacs-users, doc-debian or a new gnu-propaganda package, say), or at least to other directories (/usr/share/doc/emacs, eg).
