Unless I'm missing something, that still seems to back up Matt's statement.

There's a note on that page that some apps can now be downloaded from
the marketplace, but it's important to realise that the marketplace
app itself is one such binary-only app that you can't legally get
unless it came with your phone.

There _are_ links to downloads of the google apps on that wiki, but I
expect it's illegal to distribute them, and maybe even to download
