Yep, or to be really honest, is there need for shipping srpms on isos?

Only large scale repackagers need a huge ammount of srpms, and they
usually already mirror the SRPMS folders anyway.

Looking at my mirror I currently see

o 28 FC2-i386-disc?.iso downloads
o  1 FC2-i386-rescuecd
o  1 FC2-i386-DVD.iso
o  0 FC2-*-SRPMS-disc?.iso

The GPL states that one has the right to get access to the sources,
and as long as the SRPMS are online the legal aspects should be OK, or
