It is bad practice to include files, which not belong to the upstream
project, I think. Only exception may be, when these files are very
useful and exist the possibility, that upstream will agree to include
these files too.

Such possibility exists, but the upstream source code are not very well
organized for this purpose. Maybe it is sense to ask the upstream for
shipping the separate libfontforge package. Then should be the
possibility to make two not big packages: fontforge-cli and fontforge.
In the present case it is not worth to do so, I think.
