In Mylyn Builds we have actually modified the generated sources so
there was no alternative to committing them.

The major advantage that I see with having generated sources in Git is
that contributors are not required to have a specialized tool chain to
build and modify sources. It's a big benefit in terms of lowering the
bar to participate in a project besides simplifying the releng
process.
