I'm pretty sure it's OK to have it go in only for sdist. But don't remove it
there, as third-party packagers will need it.
R. Kern is sitting next to me, and mentions that both the distutils-sig, and
the setuptools documentation discuss this in detail (apparently there was a
thread on this very issue a few days ago on distutils-sig). I can't look it
up right now, but please have a look there as well.
