I disagree.

- tetex-bin and tetex-extra do still exist, as metapackages, and we
  would like to have the freedom to change their dependencies as we
  learn about users' needs, without bothering whether some package is
  broken by this.

- It would be nice if tetex-doc, and therefore the complete tetex-base
  source package, could be removed.
