This was asked and answered; they are neither our conventional definition
of source, nor an illegible binary format.  They are sources are not used
in any compiled form, and therefore any reciprocal or copyleft requirement
is not a problem.  They are always used in source form under any application
and therefore meet the reciprocal or copyleft requirement in any case without
additional license burdens for 'binary builds'.

Does that make more sense?
