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.
