The Debian base system is too much?Isn't it? Why would one ever install Exim in a _base_ system? To name just one.
I believe because certain things (like the daily update of the man and locate databases) depend on the ability to send mail to a user on the system if there is a failure or a problem. Thus, without such funcitonality it would be a broken system. BTW, exim can be configured to only do local mail deliveries (i.e., no incoming mail from other hosts and no outgoing mail to other hosts). -Roberto
