[p2-dev] Pack200 and Canonical Descriptor Issue

We are seeing a lot of P2 artifact repositories being produced that have only pack200 files in them. In the P2 artifact repository file, it still has an artifact descriptor for a canonical version of the artifact. Trying to get this canonical descriptor produces an exception.
The teams who own these claim that the P2 tooling is producing this. I had assumed they were just deleting their jar files. Does P2 do this? Will it add a canonical, invalid artifact descriptor when it produces a pack200 only repository?
Two examples of what I'm referring to are here:
