Bundled/embedded data in a package

So I've had a review ticket open on bugzilla for a while now for this

The software, pdfminer, bundles Adobe cmap data to process Chinese,
Japanese, and Korean languages in a pdf file. However, the question is:
does this violate the general prohibition against bundling libraries? I'm
not exactly sure, because I think it's more like bundled data than bundled
code- but I don't know if that makes a difference to the packaging

If it does violate that prohibition, the cmap stuff can easily be removed
and not built into the library (it's an optional component).
