You can release it, but it may not be possible for anyone else to
distribute it if you don't distribute the prefered form for
modification (and anything else that is required for other people to
distribute the work.)

[Of course, there is an argument that the DFSG requires source anyway,
but we'll leave that one aside for now.]

When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle. Then I 
realised that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked
Him to forgive me.
