reviewed here that have had binary files (but not compiled source code) in them. Might be
a good to label them clearly so anyone who looks know what they are.

Totally fine, yep.
The reasoning is, we can't vote on binary _code_, only the source.
If the binary data is test data, there is nothing to _code_ to verify.
There are plenty of examples. We don't vote on JPEGs and PNGs either ;)
