They can't complain about trademarks if the file is the actual

The tarball stands alone for this one; the rest of the source package
is irrelevant - if it's okay to distribute the stripped tarball alone,
then it's okay as part of the debian package too. Might be worth
asking them about it.
I will ask how a free source tarball should look like and if they are planning
to release one at some point.
