IMO, removing should be the last resort, the last thing to do.
Maybe if the package is completely broken or if by-passes do not work as
expected, then it's okay to get rid off it (even in such cases I prefer
to first open a bug report at tell that something supposed to work it
fails). I like to understand how stuff works.
Anyway, "gnome-keyring" is part of the GNOME security stack and password
management and I find it very convenient for this task, but that's of
course up to each user.
