  So it should at least be acceptable per license.   I don't see why it has to be kept in
the source tree but a removal of it should also include build changes to download a known-stable
version for use in the build,

Downloading things during build will not work in all cases, thus a 
"download something to build the stack" is not a good option.

Things in the source tree should be either in source format or 
describable as an dependency. If a "download it automatically" feature 
is needed for developer convenience then it should be an explicit 
feature that can be enabled.

I am thinking here primarily of package build systems such as OBS (Open 
Build Service) that do not provide network access when packages are 
being built.
