[Rd] vignettes and papers

Hello everyone

Lots of my packages have been the subject of
journal articles either in JSS or Rnews or (in one
case) elsewhere.

I would like to add these articles
to my packages as vignettes.

Reproducing the papers exactly requires a number
of files [such as style files or PDFs] to be included in
  the inst/doc directory to pass R CMD check.

A vanilla .Rnw file seems to be a good idea,
but loses some of the nice JSS typesetting.

What is Best Practice here?

And are there ethical or other issues that I should
be aware of  before including copies of Rnews
or JSS papers verbatim in an R package?
