Well, oo.org probably needs the same amount of RAM to actually run, so it's 
not an issue, there. That not the case for the libgl1-mesa-dri but probably 
for programs that use OpenGL . So the consideration should always include 
what effect this actually has for the users of that package.
No question that for Oo.org this is pure gain.
