I think that this paragraph in Packaging Guidelines / SourceURL answers the question:
> Some upstream packages include patents or trademarks that we are not allowed to ship
even as source code.
> In these cases you have to modify the source tarball to remove this code before you
even upload it to the build system.
The paragraph talks about code, but I imagine the same purpose would apply to binary
I agree. I had to deal with a similar issue
(non-freely-redistributable test data), and the only way to handle
this "safely" is to create "downstream" tarballs that don't
the affected files.
This will make scratch builds break, but you can always turn those off
if you're bothered by the error messages (i.e. switch from "Monitoring
and Scratch build" to just "Monitoring").
