Hmm. Actually, yes :-)

(I thought of hscolour first because that’s lacking as a
build-dependency on a lot of packages).

This is actually a neat idea to avoid the sourceful uploads that I
mentioned in my last mail: If the upcoming haskell-devscripts that will
move haddock files to -dev would depend on these five packages, it is no
problem if some haskell-* packages still list them as B-D-I, as they
have haddock as a B-D.
