I don't see the problem. If the clean-up can be performed by a script 
then it can easily be done when the packages for distribution are 
created. When we create tarballs of our source code we also throw away 
some files that are only necessary for the developers working with SVN, 
but not for just building the binaries (or at least we did so in the 
past when we still used autofoo+configure). Moreover, the distributors 
all the time create packages of files that are impossible to edit. But 
that's no problem because the creation of the binaries does not make 
the source code files vanish. And then there are the translation 

IOW, almost anything we edit is later converted (by us or the 
distributors) to something one cannot edit anymore. So why not do the 
same for the SVGs?
