Yes, and only because we're sort of forced to do it.

Apart from politics, the other reason against (whether other people
finds it compelling or not, I don't know), is that including the
binary means taking responsibility. For example, to release security
upgrades as soon as possible, at least for serious bugs. That also
means monitoring the GnuTLS lists (or security bulletins). Which is
currently done, I think, but what if the people doing it suddently
lacks time or just moves to other pursuits? It's easy to start
distributing the GnuTLS DLLs, harder to stop doing it.
