TBD. That's why there are people to do it.

The Fedora 5-DVD Speical Edition Directors Cut with Added Footage?

/me points at Rex. AFAIK, KDE4 is still a ways off.

Not sure how that applies to this feature, but it's possible. However,
'splitting up packages' isn't really a feature without some sort of
guidelines as to what we're trying to do. I mean, we could build a
separate subpackage for each binary in coreutils if we wanted to.

Not currently, no.

It's just an idea at this point. Considering what DaveJ said about
its upstream status, it's likely to fall off the list.
