I agree. The test org files are input data rather than code and I don't
think they fall under the copyright restrictions (or the code
contribution guidelines). They probably don't even need to be GPL'd -
possibly a CC license would be sufficient.

As to whether they should be part of the org-mode repository or in their
own repository, I'm not sure. It would be convenient to have them int he
org-mode repository as I expect they will become part of the testing
framework and only having to checkout one repository would be useful. On
the other hand, I guess there could be cases where people want to just
checkout these samples to use to validate their own library/parser etc.
I tend towards putting them in the org-mode repository for simplicity.
