Dumb question: have you tried consulting upstream? Getting a
definitive statement from them on the licensing of these files
would probably be most helpful and possibly even required here, as
well as assisting potential future users of this test data.

(Naturally, downloading them during the build would not be
acceptable, but I wonder what the consensus would be on the ethics
of downloading "contrib"-like data during autopkgtests?)
