I remember our slack conversation said it was ok to remove them.

Stefan has an offlist discussion with me about this too.  Why do you 
have them in your .hgignore?  I want to purge them when I say hg purge, 
but I guess I can also type hg purge -all.    Is it for hg status to 
find actually new files that haven't been hg added yet? That seems 
useful to me also.
