Yes, sure (I use them already).
I was interested to understand why you wrote that the original tiles are
the unfinished product (known), but the GLCF data are sort of finished. To
my knowledge the data are identical, just re-tiled and stored in GeoTIFF. 

Yes, the GLCF SRTM data sets are more convenient of course. But 
the data quality is identical, right?

Probably just a misunderstanding?
