I'm pretty sure that icons, gifs, jpgs are ok in both source and binary
dists.  My mental model for source dists is whether the file can do any harm
and what the developer would do to verify its safety.  For icons, gifs,
jpgs, I would load them in a display program, and if they contained a virus,
they probably wouldn't load.

I don't know what your statistical model is, but I would think of it the
same way.

The binary dist is just supposed to be a pre-compiled version of the source
