Problem is, we're not talking about a few .dtx files, but many of  
them: the tetex-texmf archive (ie without the sources) is 85 MB, and  
the tetex-texmfsrc additional archive (ie the sources) is 55 MB. Not  
negligible indeed!

Think of how large the TeX i-Package is already, and how long it may  
be to download and install for people with slow connections.
