I don't think it is a legal issue.  It is an ASF policy that the ASF only
officially releases source materials.

As Marvin has mentioned many times already, you can't easily audit
compiled code to be sure there isn't something wrong with it.

For folks in the incubator, IMO it would be to their advantage to take the
time to eradicate compiled code from the source package before proposing
to release it.  It makes the IPMC reviewers job much more efficient.

My 2 cents,
-Alex
