This approach makes more sense, though I will get clarification from
legal if they are happy with this approach.

sure, that approach is much better.

However, I thought you speak about cases where even the source tar ball
must not allow these files. In this case the src.rpm still contains the
original source tar ball.

But if that is acceptable (depends on your legal issue) it is definitive the
best way.
