Anything else in the root (aside from setup.py of course and
source files themselves) aren't without extra setup chants. (These
chants can be figured out with some effort. I never remember
them, so, if I want to do something like this, I have to figure
them out again or try to find an example with them.)

Do you mean available in the unpacked sdist, or as part of the
installation? I don't think any of README, README.txt, CHANGES,
CHANGES.txt (from the root of the distribution, not from inside the
package) are actually installed. If they are, I'd love to know
I was wrong. Dang. I think I understand setuptools/distutils and
I'm proven wrong again. Sheesh.
Actually, no package data is ever included unless you're either
* working from an svn checkout, in which case setuptools will use
the list of which files are in svn and which aren't as a hint of
what to include and what not
Certainly, I expect CHANGES.txt to be in svn. I've just doeble
checked that files from the root of the package that are checked into
svn *are* included in sdists.
I retract my objection to CHANGES.txt and offer my apologies.
