Reviewers need to be able to account for any discrepancies between the
contents to ensure that:
- the dist does not contain spurious files
- the dist is not lacking any required files.

The source distribution also has to be able to build itself.

If the tag contains files that are not in the distribution, why are
they present at all?
If they are needed, why are they not in the distribution?

Lots of discrepancies means lots of checking.
