Just a minor question here: 

Would we actually be distributing the hexadecimal format, or would we
be distributing the packed binary[1] representation of the hexadecimal

While it's probably ok the way it is written, if they're going to go
through the trouble of drafting a change, they should make it clear
that it's also ok to distribute the firmware data in the packed binary
form, assuming that's actually what will be distributed.
