Please file a bugreport against freeipa, suggesting to split into two 
source packages, one for server and one for client.

Maybe the maintainers will agree that it is a sensible move, but maybe 
they will disagree that other concerns (e.g. simplicity of maintenance) 
overweighs the risk of the package not stabilizing.

It really isn't sensible to discuss this among all Debian developers: 
It's very much tied to the maintenance of that specific package.

Kind regards, and thanks for caring about Debian,
