This is what RedHat propaganda is telling you.

I've done several papers in Law School specifically on software
licensing and analysis of GPL and related licenses. Rahul's statement
is correct -- no licenses require availability of binaries.

Might be awkward or less than helpful, but it's comfortably within the
rules of the license.

How does that clause "You may not impose any further restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein." mesh with the further restrictions that Red Hat imposes? The GPL does not distinguish between binaries and source in the required terms.
