Why not?  Isn't it true that whenever someone builds Emacs from source, it's
possible that they are using a configuration (GCC version, configure flags,
etc.) that hasn't been tested extensively, and it would make sense for them to
run Emacs' self-tests before they waste their time installing an unstable Emacs?
This seems to apply especially to the pretest tarballs, but also to the regular
distribution to some extent.

Tests should be part of the repo, yes.

But for tarballs?

What do you use the tarballs for? For building Emacs from source. Thus, what I said above applies.
