e.g. like the tons of drafts and RFCs included in the BIND package?

[dr nomad bind-9.2.3]$ rpm -q bind
[dr nomad bind-9.2.3]$ pwd
[dr nomad bind-9.2.3]$ du -sh draft rfc
2.6M    draft
996K    rfc

I also wonder wether it's really necessary to include the DocBook XML
source of the ARM, taking up another 300k.

Moving the BIND ARM into a seperate bind-doc subpackage might make
some sense.

700K    /usr/share/doc/bind-9.2.3/arm

Alternatively, at least getting rid of the DocBook XML source file
Bv9ARM-book.xml, saving about 300k.
