Indeed, .dic files are "munched" word list that are compressed according 
to the affixation rules included into the .aff files.

So, thoungh .dic files are simple text files, they aren't "sources" 
because they are already "precompiled" files, especially when they are 
included as extensions.

I think this was the main reason why Andrea Pescetti quoted the FSE 
answer about "mere aggregation" of GPLed dictionary.
