How many of those -bin packages are GPL? I'm sure there's a few, but I
can't think of a single one.
Also, we don't have pre-compiled packages in the tree. We have ebuilds
that pull down pre-compiled packages. That's easily fixable with a
RESTRICT=mirror for the few that are GPL and binary.
...and then I decided to actually look at the one package that I thought
about, and it's mplayer-bin, though we do provide those sources, since
it is just the mplayer ebuild compiled, and we have the sources for the
source-based ebuild already.
