This is more than enough to bring the size of the image under 700 MB (on a rough counting I estimated its total size as >60 MB) and it isn't a Gnome package, and it isn't included in the Xfce and KDE images either. Actually I wonder how it got pulled in, because while I didn't dig deeply into the dependency tree, Gnome doesn't seem to require it.

Because it's installed by default (on just about any non-server system) 
and nobody bothers removing it?

(That said, sadly tend to agree with both sides here: I do find OO.o
very useful personally, though I'm not really sure if it worth the extra
space it takes)
