No. It makes no sense.

There is NO WAY to verify a binary. Even compiling from source to binary on
your machine, and trying to compare against a target binary will generally
fail since timestamps are embedded. Or maybe there are different compilers
being used.

The Foundation *never* votes on binaries, because the Foundation DOES NOT
RELEASE BINARIES. The Foundation only votes/authorizes/releases source
code. REPEAT: only source code.

Only source. Which is verifiable. Which has provenance.
