Aren't they mostly official packages?  I'm sure it's easier to maintain
if they are kept together as we do for gnome's official packages.  I for
one don't like the idea of moving stuff to community/unsupported just
for the sake of doing it.  If they're really a burden or not maintained
by a dev, that's fine, but it doesn't make sense to do just to keep the
number of packages in current/extra down.
