As a tomcat user, I am not so enthousiast about your idea of removing the sources from the

Almost every user download only the binaries. Having the sources inside means bringing more
developers to the Tomcat project, just because it will be easier to take a look at the sources
(since it is already installed in their tomcat dir). The more you look at the sources, the
more you are likely to be involved.

The sources are only about 2MB and 1 directory. It is anything but a mess on the harddisk.
Furthermore it is the exact sources for the particular binary the user has, not some more
recent or older sources.
