So what? It's still up to the copyright holder to decide who
may make copies and how those copies may be distributed. In
book publishing, it is extremely common for one publisher to
buy hardcover rights and for another to buy paperback rights.
Each publisher is copying exactly the same words, but each may
only print in the format to which they have purchased rights.
Having separate requirements for source and binary is the same.
