Then they probably fall in this category of the suggest removal guidelines

This situation is behind my reasoning to create a list of potential 
removals first.  I think we need to be careful of removing too many 
packages, especially in our first cleanup attempt.  Just the really 
unneeded ones as a first step.  I had even considered that once the list 
was made, then I would archive all the relevant PKGBUILDs before 
deleting them. But it would be better to just not delete useful packages 
in the first place...
