My question is :
is it good to provide a -cli package that does not provides a separate

carefull to not launch it in a way that it does not require a graphic

The design seems idiotic.

Anyway, you have to weigh the surplus of admins not having to install
graphical stuff on their servers versus the possible problems caused by
new users trying to work the package in a way it isn't supposed to be
used.

I'd say: it's up to the packager.

Or, package it , er, twice, with two copies with different options. See: Ettercap

Warning:  This is the most annoying choice, and I sometimes regret it.
