I don't know about anarchism (never looked at it), but from my
point of view, bible-kjv-text is in there because it's useful
reference material.  I would support packaging, e.g., the
collected works of Shakespeare for the same reason.  bible-kjv
is a program for searching through bible-kjv-text, it's there for
the same reasons that any other free software program is.
