I was asked not to include expat in GDB, which was a similar
situation.  I don't remember if this was an FSF issue; I know that the
FSF, in general, dislikes duplicated source code in packages, but I
don't know if they care when the duplicated bits are non-GNU.  There
were definitely GDB developers that disliked bundling expat, so
perhaps you can find the reasons in the archives.
