Then why don't you put them into the tarball? Or should they get packaged as 
a separate package that you can then depend on?

While that would at least not fail the build in Fedora, packages downloading 
additional files at runtime that they need to be able to do anything is 
somewhat frowned upon around here. (Whether you will get away with it 
depends on what the files do and what license they fall under.)

I personally do not think that it is acceptable for an image viewer to 
require an Internet connection at runtime. Your proposed solution only moves 
the problem instead of solving it.
