It seems that you don't get the point. I just wanted to mention that the
dictionary files we have in svn can be seen as and *end product* and so
probably(!) are comparable more with a binary file than with a source
file. This would leave the option that we even can ship them with a
source release. I don't say that this is a fact, I just wanted to point
out a possibility that is worth investigating.
