In general I agree (and fwiw I think that the .gitignore files should be treated the same way), but the scenario files sometimes include some kind of setup preamble and a series of arguments fed into an app or script via pan.
I'm positive that folks in my old group at cisco don't execute the test apps manually unless they're trying to repro issues, and even then I questioned the competence of some devs executing ltp apps standalone.
