Blah blah blah. What matters is the maintainers' views (as long as
common sense applies). They chose to follow upstream's choices, which is
usually a sane thing to do (unless upstream is crazy).

Now if you don't like those choices, pick your own packages yourself,
build your own meta package, or whatever.

Plenty of RC bugs to submit patches for. Surely more interesting than
those meta packages, right?
