It can happen that the scientific paper has non-free copyright: it uses to be 
attributed to the journal where first published. Or simply that the author of 
the paper does not want to share the TeX source of the paper itself, just the 
paper (and the wrote-in knowledge). I'd split the package and leave the PS 
paper (if allowed by its specific copyright, indeed) into non-free.
