Yes of course, the very essence of free software is that you can get
the source and modify it, allowing exceptions to this is dangerous.
For fonts it is perfectly possible to claim a .ttf file is a preferred
modifiable form and for images a .png file can be preferred modifiable
form but if there's a scalar form that would of course be better and
should be included.

No, in Ubuntu at least we won't stop ensuring that everything is
modifiable and has free licences as is our policy, and KDE's policy.
