[arch-general] Why bind-tools was merged into bind package?

I can understand that packagers want to make things easy, but not in
this case. I cannot have a full service installed with a new user
created, only host, dig and nslookup commands. The splitted package
bind and bind-tools had this option, but now I must install a service
that I do not need which is annoying.

There is any way to reconsider this?
