So deleting the source makes it ok to distribute binary-only?

Well, so far I don't know a single case where a game released under
the GPL that was rejected from Debian, however almost none of them
comes with 'source' for the images that are used in them. So I am just
not sure how Debian handles such situations in general or if it tries
to handle them at all.
