Is the current kernel source available as a binary package?

I ask because this is not the case on Ubuntu, and AFAICS
this breaches the spirit if not letter of the GPL,
as well as a long tradition of Unix.

On Ubuntu, kernel sources ARE available as binaries. Just not
the current one. Is this Ubuntu being slack, subverting the
Debian system, or is Debian guilty too?
