What problem exactly are you trying to solve here? Why exactly is it a
problem that Debian has so many packages? Which packages do you find
unneeded and unused? A package that may be not useful for you may be
very useful for many others.

I agree with you that the many orphaned packages are a problem, but that
won't be solved by your proposal.

Kind regards,
