Let me refrase my question: can you explictly point out some packages
that have been ITP'ed lately and of which you think that they should not
go into Debian because they aren't needed? I can't, so I don't think
there's a problem here.

We could also just drop all extra and optional packages, that might also
stop teh growing of that list (and it will be a lot more effective I
think). Seriously though, it's not the new packages we should worry
about (they are mostly well taken care of and not orphaned quickly), but
the old ones.

Kind regards,
