I would not go that far but xorg-x11-utils should be available
(which it is).

You mean the only person which has use for such things?  Definitely
not.  On various occasions utilities like xwininfo, xprop, xev,
xfontsel, xdpyinfo were crucial for me while, obviously, these
are not things used every day. For example, if you are trying
to set up something for devilspie doing that "in blind" is a truly
loosing proposition.  OTOH I have xorg-x11-utils usually installed
as a matter of fact so I was not paying attention if that shows
up in defaults.

Once you used it is hardly worth to bother to deinstall the package
even if the next time when you will need it will be in a half year
or so.
