Default Publishing pregen stats for GURPS

I've got a slightly nuanced question about publishing. I suspect the answer's "no" but I thought it worth checking just in case.

I'm publishing a scenario (not using GURPS, I hasten to add, I'm well aware that's off-limits). It's a weird investigation scenario, and I know some GURPS players who enjoy that sort of thing. Easy enough to switch rulesets, though.

It occurred to me that it might be nice to provide pregens in GURPS as well as the other ruleset. After all, it's the most time-consuming part of converting between systems (the scenario is tailored around the pregens and their abilities so you can't simply throw in any old character). However, that seems to put things in murky territory and I don't want to run into any problems.

I'm aware of the fan content rules, but that won't apply here as I'm selling it.

I don't propose to include any GURPS rules or references anywhere in the scenario; this would simply be a set of character sheets for the pregens.

From what I can see in the online rules, there'd be no problem if somebody else did this and released it for free; character stats are permitted by the policy, and as the creator of the original I wouldn't have any problem with it. But my impression is that I'm not personally allowed to do it.

If this isn't permitted, that's fine. It just means if someone wants to run my scenario in GURPS they'll have to do that work themselves. It seemed worth asking around first.
