That may be, but it doesn't make distributing a snapshot of gnulib as a
"package" any less problematic.  It is still the wrong thing to do.

I don't see any "right" thing to do, other than not distribute it, but it's a valuable resource for developers, some of whom may only ever get Debian on CD, and not have internet connections. I suppose it comes down to "how is one supposed to use gnulib if one doesn't have an internet connection?".
