Why do you think this is a bad idea ?

Because they would be harder to find, resulting in fake GPL violation
discussions on this list :-(

Another point to consider: If it becomes possible to mirror the
distribution without the source RPMs, someone will do it; and if someone
does it, people will come back here and ask why there are just binaries
on a mirror and not the sources.

Brute-forcing mirrors to have the source RPMs by tying them together
with the binary RPMs is a desirable effect IMHO.

Serving fools just creates a new fool.

So this should not be an "originary" aspect.
