Anyone that distributes Emacs binaries linked with these libraries
is supposed to distribute their source code too.
I'm not sure how we ended up here. I was not talking about binaries, or indeed, anyone's distribution of Emacs but ours.

I was saying that, just as we do not insist that all our C dependencies be a) installed in Emacs's git repository and b) distributed as part of Emacs source releases, there is no reason in principle why we cannot have external Elisp dependencies, for example Org and CEDET.
