I don't think permission from Intel is the blocking issue for putting these
binaries up on PyPI. Even with Intel's permission, we would be putting up
proprietary binaries on a page that is explicitly claiming that the files
linked therein are BSD-licensed. The binaries could not be redistributed
with any GPLed module, say, pygsl.

We could host them on numpy.org on their own page that clearly explained
the license of those files, but I think PyPI is out.
