Definitely no! CTAN's nonfree means restrictions in use or redistribution,
but not modification. See <http://www.tex.ac.uk/tex-archive/#licence>:

  Note that distributions whose licences are the non-`Debian'-free 
  category nosource is not moved to the nonfree/ tree; CTAN is concerned 
  with distributability, rather than the broader modifiability, etc., 
  that the free software movement seeks.
