Please ship source lisp files with emacs

The packaging guildelines for emacs  state that emacs packages should ship source lisp files:
Packaging of source elisp files
Typically, an Emacs add-on package will be compiled from source elisp files. The resulting compiled elisp files will then be included in the relevant emacs-foo and xemacs-foo packages. It is important to also include the source elisp files for several reasons. For example when debugging a problem with an (X)Emacs package, the Elisp debugger can look up the relevant code or symbol definition in the source lisp file if present. Also, it's sometimes helpful to jump to a variable description string from the Emacs help system.
Please modify the emacs package itself to install the source lisp files. There are so many times I want to see how a function is implemented but emacs cant point me to the source :(
Did you try to install emacs-el package?
Are there any files missing?
By the way I do not think to provide el files together with emacs package.
Ah, yes. I somehow missed the emacs-el package. Everything works fine when I install it.
Sorry for the noise.
