Splitting the music and data files from the code is sensible, as the 
former are less volatile, then the latter.
Thus I'd consider a second tarball containing music not to be against the 
spirit of these rules.

My reading would be:

Yes. If the sound files can be considered "part of the game", which would 
include IMNSHO being linked as a seperate file on the URL of the game, 
they should be packaged.
