Not clear to me if your proposal means the data sheets are included in
the distributed package?
If so, that most likely runs afoul of the company's copyrights and
would require permission from said copyright owner, for *each* data
I've had to contact legal departments to use information in data
sheets in some of my work, and they've always been happy to grant such
 but you still have to go through the time consuming steps.
