Looks like a gray area. I wonder if a gzipped version that's
decompressed on the fly is considered binary compatible. Or minified
JS. Didn't I see a post by RMS that minified JS constitutes binary-ish

Quoting RMS:

The source code of a program is the preferred form for modifying it;
the compacted code is not source code, and the real source code of
this program is not available to the user. [1]

So, all we need to do is minify it and we're good (cause no one argues
with the RMS).
