I believe that you it isn't forbidden to put files in the data folder if they don't overwrite the normal files. Some of them will be loaded instead of Blizzard's files contained in the .mpq files, but you won't have modified any file from the game, and this system cannot be used to change anything (I haven't investigated it much, but it worked for the musics and i heard it didn't work for the textures, which probably suits Blizzard's wishes).
I'm not a lawyer either, and as what I'm saying brings us closer to the frontier between "allowed" and "forbidden", being careful would mean not trying this anyway.
