 Yes, they are. xfonts-xtt-* packages are very small.
 And perhaps tfm files will be small too.
 So, if will not inclease meta data files (for other parpus),
these size are no problem, I think too.

 But one more reasen I think better to separate these packages.
ttf-xtt-* includes Japanese TrueType fonts, they are big. these
packages are about 1.4Mbytes each.

 For example, if ttf-xtt-* includes meta datas(fonts.alias,
fonts.scale, tfm and so on) and when only fonts.alias update and
upload. A user would download ttf-xtt-* package (include other files,
they are not updated), if the user use the package only for TeX (not
using for X).This update perhaps would not need the user.
