If we consider these files part of Emacs, then the GPL applies to
them.  But since they are made from a file with a lax license, they
themselves don't have to be under the GPL.  We can consider them
something distributed along with Emacs, in which case the GPL doesn't
have to apply to them.

That explains why I don't see a legal issue here, and why the users
are not violating the GPL.

Notwithstanding that, is there any reason not to add those source
files to Emacs?  Nobody responded to that.
