My sentence could have several interpretations. Your rephrasing in
other mails in this thread is indeed in agreement with my point : if
*.ttf files are the only "source" for a font, then they're "good
enough" sources. If something else is used and wished by the font
authors, then it should be redistributed.

In short, I'm OK with considering *.ttf files as "source" files when
nothing else is available.
