Of course not. But its apparently not so silly as to be self-evident, if
silly at all; someone likes and I assume uses these packages.

A better solution, IMO, is to reduce the size of the Packages file by
splitting information out of it; this has already been proposed. It'd be
a lot of work. 

Another solution would be a Packages file with only the top n packages
from popularity contest, but that's generally called CD 1 ;-)
