That's not bad idea. But I also think to safe packager's load ;)
As I have long list of packages to maintain and there are often lack
man power in team I tend minimize packaging work.

What about ask upstream to include 2 demo_songs and 2 drumkits in hydrogen?
Then provide hydrogen-data package with this "songs and drumkits"
and add link for downloading other files in description of package.

Hopefully simple for user and easy to maintain
