Probably the reason there is no guideline treating all generated files
the same way is some groups of packagers are lazier than others.

See, I can make inflamatory comments too.

IMHO there is no reason to allow any pre-generated file except when the
generating chain is not packaged in Fedora. As Kevin wrote refusing to
re-generate files because of peotential breakage is only papering over
tool bugs. Also it's legaly borderline for everything which is (L)GPL.
