[Fedora-packaging] No pre-built applications rule

It's come to my attention that we don't have a "Packages must be built
from source, no precompiled binaries" rule in the current guidelines. I
think this is an oversight as the Binary Firmware section:
implies this for the specific case of firmware.
How about something like:
"Packages must be built from source code. Including pre-built programs
or libraries is strictly forbidden. A select few exceptions are made
for binary firmware. Please see
And on ReviewGuidelines:
"Must: The package must be built from source. No pre-built programs or
libraries are acceptable."
Thoughts, opinions welcome.
