As to the bug itself, I can not and will not speak for why it bothers
the OP. To answer your question though, it bothers me because I don't
want packages on my machine I don't need.
    

If you need package XYZ and package XYZ needs package foo for whatever
reason, then you need package foo, even if it doesn't intuitively make
sense to you.

  
As it is my machine that is reason enough.
    

It's not, there's no rationale for removing small packages just because you
think you don't need them (when you actually do, see above).

  
Size is irrelevant.
    

Huh? What harm is a package with a size in the KB range going to do? Just
leave it sitting there instead of wasting your and our time whining about a
dependency.

I didn't whine but if that is how you took it, good for you. You missed the point, so I wont bother explaining again. Let me decide how to use my time, you've made it clear how you want to use yours.
