It happened in the past that changes break tests. If you have a binary checked in, it's harder to understand what was the original intent, IMHO.
That's why I was recommending to use YAML, if possible at all. That said, I don't think it's critical, and your comment is explicative enough.

This LGTM after the two minors are fixed.
